hat tip Doc Bulldog:
Harvard University has moved to make Muslim women more comfortable in the gym by instituting women-only access times six hours a week to accommodate religious customs that make it difficult for some students to work out in the presence of men.
Men have not been allowed to enter the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center during certain times since Jan. 28, after members of the Harvard Islamic Society and the Harvard Women’s Center petitioned the university for a more comfortable environment for women.
Update: U Penn on the brink of sharia – “Although there has not yet been a push for a policy similar to Harvard’s, “it’s definitely wanted,” she said. “This might be the next step of making [the MSA] known on campus.”
Update – Ten years ago Yale refused request by Othodox Jewish women for separate dorms – co-mingling of sexes part of college experience! Sharia I tell you, Sharia!
