    “They can of course segregate in whatever way they wish in their own Mosque…” – Actually, I don’t agree with this. It is still discrimination against women, based on gender. It’s no more acceptable than anywhere else. In Canada, it would be possible (and desirable, in my opinion) to build a case with a view to prohibit the Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim religions based on the fact that they discriminate against women (e.g., women are forbidden to become Catholic priests only because of their gender) and thus go against the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms which explicitely forbids discrimination based on gender, race, sexual orientation, etc. A lot of hypocrisy here.

  2. Sexual segregation is a legal requirement. It can be helpful for students because it reduces distractions and gender competition. But i think it is consider discrimination against women.
