There’s a very good conversation going on the Facebook page for the event Protest Against Universities UK! No to gender apartheid! It’s a conversation between secular liberals and Islamists.
In any case you should know about the event if you’re going to be in or near London on December 10.
Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Time 5:00pm in UTC
On the occasion of the International Human Rights Day we oppose the legitimisation of forced gender segregation by Universities UK, the body representing the leadership of UK universities.
Universities UK has issued a guidance on external speakers saying that the segregation of the sexes at universities is not discriminatory as long as “both men and women are being treated equally, as they are both being segregated in the same way.” Outrageously, the document has been supported by the National Union of Students.
We will meet at 5pm to start the protest at 5.30pm.
A list of speakers to follow soon!
Read the call to action here.
This post by Chris Moos, in particular, has a lot of back and forth.
I have some valuable new friends now thanks to that page.
