Universities 'can segregate men and women for debates'

What a bunch of groveling, craven cowards with their noses firmly planted up the backside of the Muslim street.  These miserable Quislings can't even use the word Muslim, rather they use euphemisms like "controversial speaker" or "external speaker".  Inch by inch and bit by bit the Muslim invasion is taking control of the everyday lives of the common man.


Universities 'can segregate men and women for debates'

A group of university leaders issued guidance saying that it may be acceptable to separate genders, as long as they are segregated side by side

Universities can segregate students during debates as long as the women are not forced to sit behind the men, university leaders have said.

Segregation at the behest of a controversial speaker is an issue which arises "all the time” and banning men and women from sitting next to each during debates is a "big issue" facing universities, Universities UK has said.

As a result they have issued guidance which suggests that segregation is likely to be acceptable as long as men and women are seated side by side and one party is not at a disadvantage.

In a new guidance on external speakers, vice-chancellors' group Universities UK says that universities face a complex balance of promoting freedom of speech without breaking equality and discrimination laws.

When considering a request for segregation, they warn, planners must think about whether a seating plan could be discriminatory to one gender - for example if women were forced to sit at the back of the room it could prove harder for them to participate in the debate.

The report adds: "Assuming the side-by-side segregated seating arrangement is adopted, there does not appear to be any discrimination on gender grounds merely by imposing segregated seating. Both men and women are being treated equally, as they are both being segregated in the same way."

Earlier this year, a student equality group claimed that preaching by extremists and discrimination through segregation at student events has become a "widespread" trend at many UK universities.
