Sexism row erupts as UK play center bans fathers to avoid offending Muslim women
London, Aug 8 (ANI): A children's play center in Britain has been plunged into a sexism row after it banned fathers from entering the premises to avoid offending Muslim women.
Kids Go Wild is believed to be the first such play centre in the country to introduce a 'women only' policy, which also bans boys over the age of nine.
Bosses at the center, claimed the policy was instigated for 'cultural reasons' and was in the interests of women.
The move has, however, angered both Muslim and non-Muslim men, with one father branding the move as "disgusting" and "sexist," The Daily Express reports.
"In the Muslim community men and women being separate is normal at religious events and social functions. But a play centre isn't a religious or function thing. It's somewhere for children to play. A ban on men gives the wrong impression about men," the report quoted a father, as saying
A poster outside the centre, in the predominantly Asian area of Birmingham, reads: "Ladies and children only. No boys over nine allowed."
The newly-formed group advertises itself as "the UK's first ladies and children's only soft play centre". (ANI)
