Danish authorities demand women-only swimming sessions used by Muslim immigrants are scrapped

Danish authorities have voted in overwhelming favour to scrap women-only swimming sessions used by migrants at a swimming pool.

Officials in the city of Aarhus demanded the end of gender-separated sessions at the Gellerupbadet swimming hall saying people need to ‘learn to swim together’.

Many of the women who use the sessions are Muslim migrants who live on a nearby housing estate.
