Lawsuit says NY women's classes are discriminatory
August 20, 2008
NEW YORK (AP) -- A man who uses lawsuits to crusade against feminists has sued Columbia University, saying its women's studies program is unconstitutional because there's no comparable men's program.
Attorney Roy Den Hollander filed the lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan on Monday.
The lawsuit claims the women's studies program is discriminatory. It says the university uses government aid to promote a religious belief system known as feminism. It seeks a men's program or an end to the women's program.
Columbia University has no comment on the lawsuit.
Hollander last year filed a lawsuit saying ladies' nights at Manhattan nightclubs are discriminatory because they offer women free or discounted admission and drinks. Nightclub attorneys call that pending lawsuit frivolous.
