Tory leader David Cameron is to issue a call for an end to the oppression of Muslim women who are prevented from going out to work or attending university. In a keynote speech on social cohesion, he will warn that difficult issues must not be avoided by hiding behind “a screen of cultural sensitivity”. But even before he spoke, Mr Cameron was under fire from some Muslims after he used a newspaper article linked to the speech to call for a new “crusade for fairness”.
Judy Viitanen, PRimage MD, applauds David Cameron for speaking out on this. Do you? As a fomer school governor and district councillor, she shares Cameron’s views on social cohesion – and feels very strongly that all pupils should be given a fair and equal opportunity to develop their skills.
