Gender segregation advice in UK universities and male-only priest church involvement in Scottsh education

Your correspondent Veronica Wikman is right to condemn Universities UK advice that gender segregation in audiences would be acceptable to meet the religious requirements of external speakers.

But should not that organisation seek to change the law rather than issue such objectionable advice?

And, in a closely related issue, why do the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament, both of which are ostensibly pledged to gender equality, facilitate a church that does not allow women priests, to play such a large role in our state education system?
