Fathers have been banned from watching their daughters compete at a Jewish secondary school’s sports day.
Yavneh College in Borehamwood has written to parents informing them that “male spectators” are not allowed at the girls’ section of sports day, which is taking place on Monday.
“I disagree with this strongly,” said one mother, who asked not to be named. “It’s done for religious reasons but it’s completely over the top. My daughter is very disappointed that her dad won’t be able to watch her compete.”
