Segregation row rumbles on: Labour defends rally where Muslim men and women sat apart
by Alison Little
Labour came under further fire today for supporting an election meeting where Muslim men and women sat apart.
The leading party figures who attended included Tom Watson, Liam Byrne and Jack Dromey, who is married to Labour deputy leader and arch-feminist equality campaigner Harriet Harman
The party insisted the segregation was voluntary, despite claims the audience were told they could not sit in mixed groups at the Birmingham community centre event.
