Melbourne Uni: Menstruating Women Squat in the Back!

Women’s Lib, what it really means:

When a certain faith insists on segregation in public buildings…. well, go right ahead:

THE University of Melbourne has declined to condemn gender segregation at public events held by Islamic organisations at its Parkville campus… (Andrew Bolt)

Take a look at this photograph. It appeared in The Toronto Star‘s education section

This is the scene every Friday at the cafeteria of Valley Park Middle School in Toronto. Not a private academy, it’s a public school funded by taxpayers.

Archbishop Cranmer:

Why do ‘human rights’ fly out of the window when confronted by Islam? Why does liberal democracy take a back seat in the toleration of sharia law? Why do universities and public institutions bend over backwards to avoid the charge of ‘Islamophobia’?

In principle, we should be free to associate as we choose.

The Left is furious when private clubs exercise that freedom. From four years ago:

Private clubs enjoy an automatic exemption from anti-discrimination laws and are free to restrict membership on attributes including gender.

Attorney-General Rob Hulls has indicated he would like to change the situation when state cabinet considers a rewrite of the Equal Opportunity Act, passed in 1995.

Major changes up for consideration include ending the automatic exclusion for private clubs and allowing the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission to initiate its own anti-discrimination actions.

Women at the back: Giving in to Islam at Melbourne Uni

But when a certain faith insists on segregation in public buildings…. well, go right ahead:

THE University of Melbourne has declined to condemn gender segregation at public events held by Islamic organisations at its Parkville campus

On April 13, a lecture entitled “Islamic rulings on Jihad in Syria & why great scholars’ silence” (sic) was held in the university’s Copland Theatre by Islamic education organisation Hikmah Way.

At the entrance to the lecture, attended by The Australian, signs directed “sisters” to the back of the theatre, and “brothers” to the front. Asked whether seating was segregated, a male attendee said: “It usually is here, yeah.”…

Gender segregation was also encouraged at an information session for prospective Australian Islamic Peace Conference volunteers held by the Islamic Research and Educational Academy at the university’s Public Lecture Theatre on March 10.

The Australian understands the practice has been encouraged at many similar events held at the university in recent years.

On Tuesday, the university was made aware of these events and asked about its policy on gender equality and whether it would consider prohibiting gender segregation at events held on campus.

A spokeswoman said yesterday the lecture had been held by a non-university organisation and run as an external event.

One Leftist, at least, is consistent in her beliefs:


University of Melbourne gender politics professor Sheila Jeffreys said she was shocked to learn that this “form of subordinating women” was taking place on an Australian university campus.

“There needs to be great outrage about this,” Professor Jeffreys said. “It is a Rosa Parks moment . . . Making women sit at the back in lecture theatres is sexual apartheid…

“Religious ideas that so blatantly make women into second-class citizens are not worthy of respect…”

Professor Jeffreys said the events at the University of Melbourne were part of a “wider trend” that was seeing women’s equality rights eroded under the mantra of religion and culture, even at the level of the UN.

Others, though…:


University of Melbourne student union women’s officers Amy Jenkins and Mercedes Marsh declined to comment until they had the opportunity to meet with their Women of Colour Caucus on Wednesday.

  1. The reason for all this is simple. Islam is a Third World religion. It is a non-White religion. It is People of Color Being Sacred.

    Liberalism, that Whitest of ideologies, adores and reveres all things Colored. So Islam, for liberals, is actually a non-White race. And therefore sacred.

    I sound flip but I am absolutely serious. It explains everything.

  2. yeahhh, show them your arse while you’re at it,
    a row of hairy arses pointing at them!
    respect for women? my arse……
