CANADA: McGill University Muslim baghead student demands “women only” hours at the gym

Second-year law student Soumia Allalou said her Islamic religious beliefs exclude her from exercising in the presence of men, and added that all women would benefit from having the option of working out during exclusive hours. But a majority of women signing a petition are against women-only hours.

An online petition, titled “We oppose women-only hours at the McGill Fitness Centre,” had attracted at least 600 signatures before the link to the petition went down.
