Banning people from events simply because of their gender. How incredibly sexist. It's just as bad as banning people because of their race.

How shameful that WF council are allowing these divisive people to use council facilities.

If it upsets you, I suppose the thing to do is not vote for any candidate at the next elections which has supported or attended this event. They don't seem to want any votes from men.
