'This dinner was a private function, off-campus and organised by a society of the Students' Union, which itself is a legally separate body to LSE.'
As the segregation was voluntary and the people who went to the dinner wanted the segregation, then there's not really an issue here.
I have no problem with them doing it in a Muslim country.
A Western country? Hell no. Pretty sure the British don't want people from the Middle ages in their universities.
muslim men and women are segregated in islamic events..
personally as a muslim i think its crap (hence i don't attend any islamic events), but mainly because as a man, i'm only interested in meeting women and not other mandem, but it's part of the religion so to each their own.
'Nona Buckley-Irvine, the head of LSE's student union and a self-professed feminist, attended the dinner and insisted that the atmosphere was 'comfortable and relaxed' despite the gender divide.'
says it all really
Outrageous. What next? Gender-segregated education? Clubs that only admit men? Oh wait, we do such things already.
It's their society so let them do what they want. It doesn't directly affect any of you, does it?
Hey op did you know toilets are gender segregated too? Too bad there is nothing Islamic about it to warrant your undivided attention!
