Discrimination was brought up when today on Twitter we were discussing preventing girls wearing a veil from attending their AUC after grad party. All details were blogged by @Gsquare86 in this blog post. (Please notice that prevention wasn't by the university, but by a certain party organizer)
I was extremely angry about this type of discrimination because I once felt it too, and as soon as I tweeted about it and my experience, a whole storm of retweets to it and tweets that were sent to me by those who felt discrimination too one way or another.
Many people suggested and liked the idea of creating a list of companies or places where discrimination is encountered, and I like this idea a lot, but it may also put us into legal trouble with these companies, however, I'll just put what was said on Twitter and everyone is accountable for his words about the companies/places s/he mentioned.

I'll let you read the following replies and tweets..
As you noticed, this is not a single case of discrimination, and it was done for all the possible reasons you may even think of: nationality, religion, gender, ...!!
I am against discrimination of all types and sources. If any company or place wants to have its own rules, then it should first abide by the human rights rules as well as the country's laws (they should exist soon to end discrimination!).
And I would give my life for a veiled girl to have her rights, even though I am not veiled, but because it is our role as citizens to fight this sort of racism, sexism and ignorance. This has nothing to do with religion, this is purely human rights and war against closed-minds.Follow @evronia
