Kuwait aspires to becom a modern vibrant society with cultural centers and an education system that would attract people from all over the region and world. But, Kuwait is still hampered by outdatedf laws stemming from the religious sector. A new law will end segregation of male and female students at Kuwait universities. According to liberal MP Mohammad Al-Sager, “All universities and schools in Muslim countries adopt coeducation and their standard is good. So, why should we cast doubt on the morals of our sons and daughters by forcing them to separtate?” Conservative MPs were furious at his remarks and threatened to make certain segregation remained.
It’s time to move on, Kuwait.
