Gender inequality

Veronica Wikman (Letters, 2 December) rightly condemns Universities UK advice that gender segregation in audiences in universities would be acceptable to meet the religious beliefs 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 Scottish Parliament, which are both pledged to gender equality, facilitate a church which does not allow women priests to play such a large role in our state education system?
