'Gender Segregation Is Discrimination' - So Why Does the EHRC Allow for Exemptions?

Chris Moos | Posted 21.07.2014 | UK Politics

Equality is a human right that cannot be 'exempted away' - especially when this means providing cover for the multi-faithist ideology of a political class that is so much about faith and so little about basic human rights, including the right to practice one's religion without being subject to gender discrimination.

London Less Integrated Than the Rest of the Country, Report Finds

Exactly why the middle bands of the class structure, which contains around half the population, contain less ethnic interaction is unclear. One explanation mooted by social theorists is that this group has less of an achieved status than the professional class, and therefore invests more strongly in its ethnic identity...

Is the PC Culture Alienating People With Disabilities and Those From Other Minorities

Dr Nicholas M. Almond

People with cerebral palsy can remember when SCOPE was called The Spastic Society. Now we have a culture where political correctness has overtaken and one cannot use the term 'disabled' or 'mentally handicapped' or even 'handicapped'; instead we have to use the terms 'less-abled' or 'learning difficulties'. Is this really required

White Flight in England?

Why are whites leaving diversity so much more than minorities? Counterurbanisation doesn't explain the pattern since working and lower-middle class white British opt for homogeneity more than their professional/managerial counterparts.

Ironically Named 'Student Rights' Group Exposed by Actual Students

Why, up till now, has Student Rights hidden the fact that it is a Henry Jackson Society project from students and the media? The fact that it has 'never denied' the link hardly smacks of transparency or accountability. It should not be down to students to start a campaign to point out the affiliations or funding of an organisation operating in the public sphere.

Gender Segregated Seating: Why the Uproar?

Then the fact that segregation is being facilitated between men and women, by men and women in Islamic societies, shows the commitment to cater for both genders. Discriminating against women would mean denying women entry, or any participation in the venue. Neither of these takes place.

Topless Protests Are Not the Answer

Please, do not dictate how Muslim women should feel based on your own limited and intrinsically biased worldview. Don't attempt to remould our entire paradigm. And especially, don't insult all that it means to be a feminist by implying that women need to show their bare chest in order to be heard.

Stop Demonising the Mainstream Muslim Community, the Biggest Barrier to Violent Extremism

Sadly the Woolwich atrocity has been followed up by a wave of anti-Muslim violent extremism - a mosque that was petrol bombed last night is just one of many violent attacks on mosques, Muslims and their property in Britain.

Defending the Right of - Muslim - Students

Whether or not students want to segregate, in a liberal and democratic society the right to practising one's faith stops where one starts imposing it on others. Contrary to what some assert, there is no right of the religiously observant to impose their sensibilities on others.

We Tolerate Each Other - But We Are Far From Integrated

The UK has a segregation problem. When we open our eyes we can see it. We see it when we visit our schools, we see it when we walk round our neighbourhoods, we see it when we look at our friends. By age, income and race - our country divides every morning and every evening.

'White Flight' From London?

Eric Kaufmann | Posted 20.02.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Eric Kaufmann

Of all the changes announced by the 2011 census, one of the most startling is the rapid change in the ethnic composition of London's population. This has caught experts by surprise and reflects an underestimate of the extent to which white British people have opted to leave an increasingly diverse London.

The precise words that Ed Miliband used in his immigration speech on 14 December will not matter. Whatever careful caveats inserted to try to counter any claims that he was blowing the rhetorical whistle of race will be ignored.

Stop Criticising 'Girls'; Start Criticising Yourself

Girls features an exclusively white cast both in terms of its main characters and its peripheral ones, and this has been a source of much condemnation. But instead of criticising Girls and Lena Dunham, its writer, we should really criticise ourselves.

Advocates of Bussing Should Learn From British History and not Just the US

Vicki Butler | Posted 04.12.2012 | UK Universities & Education
Vicki Butler

In the mid 1960s, following a recommendation from the then Department for Education and Science (in a circular entitled "Spreading the Children") two local authorities with high ethnic minority populations - Ealing and Bradford - decided to introduce bussing. Little archival information exists about bussing in Bradford but records in the National Archives show that in Ealing the policy was toxic.

Segregated Schools: Racism Begins Early

Bansi Kara | Posted 27.04.2012 | UK Universities & Education
Bansi Kara

In every school I've worked in, I have been startled and disappointed by the racial segregation that occurs on a daily basis in our canteens and playgrounds. I cannot help but wonder what this means for a society that is again starting to realise that race and class are as divisive as they have always been.

Discord in Zion - Rise of Israel's Ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) Groups

In Israel's thoroughly modern society, women stand at the head of industries and are even the current leaders of the two main political parties. This country currently has a woman heading the supreme court and has had the famous Golda Meir for a prime minister decades ago. But the civilised nature of this society is at breaking point.
