Indian-origin student takes on UK varsity gender segregation
Times of India
An Indian-origin Cambridge University student has challenged a move by British universities to allow "voluntary" gender segregation at Muslim meetings on campuses across the country.
Radha Bhatt has demanded in a legal letter that Universities UK (UUK), which represents all vice-chancellors in the UK, admit that a guidance on segregation it published last November was "unlawful".
UUK's guidance had cited a case study to justify its policy of allowing the "voluntary" separation of men and women for religious purposes.
