The students were wrong. Without a doubt, the representatives of the Muslim Students' Association (MSA) at UWS's Parramatta campus made a mistake in requesting the segregation of men and women at a recent event.
A recent article in The Daily Telegraph implied the university tolerates a form of subtle sexism by virtue of what occurred. The university rejects this assertion.
UWS has never condoned gender segregation, and all of our students are well aware of this.
