Sit at the Back (of the class)
In today's Australian:
Oh, the irony of Tony Abbott criticising Melbourne University for allowing an Islamic event with segregated seating to take place (Campus "leaping back to dark age", 27-28/4)!
The Catholic Church does not allow women to participate in leadership. At the last papal conclave, women would have been happy with segregated seating if they had been allowed into the room.

In her rush to condemn Tony Abbot for his religious beliefs, perhaps she might have asked how he'd act were he invited to Friday night prayers at a mosque. Of course there would be no problem.
Oh the stupidity of a woman who couldn't tell the difference between an organised religious event held in a sacred location (the papal enclave) and a political meeting (a lecture on Islamic Jihad in Syria) held at a largely taxpayer-funded university campus.
