Wanted: Men's Studies 101

Man sues Columbia University for what he calls "unconstitutional" woman studies program

A man who is already crusading against ladies’ nights in bars has sued Columbia University, saying its women’s studies program is unconstitutional.Roy Den Hollander filed the lawsuit Monday in federal court in New York. The lawsuit claims the college program is discriminatory because there’s no comparable men’s program. It says the university uses government aid to promote a religious belief system known as feminism.

The suit seeks a men’s program or an end to the women’s program. A Columbia University spokesman says he has no comment.

Hollander last year sued over ladies’ nights at Manhattan nightclubs. Nightclub lawyers call the pending lawsuit frivolous.
