Sharia At Harvard

I suppose the ACLU will be filing suit on this issue of blatant sexual discrimination. I mean, there's no way they would tolerate public areas of the university being made off-limits to women and they certainly would be opposed to the imposition of religious decrees on those who didn't even follow that religion.

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.
