A "Fatwa" is a legal ruling under Sharia law issued by an Imam or Islamic scholar.
The first Fatwa issued by the Taliban "clarified" that their brand of Sharia law forbids the coeducation of women and men.
There are alienated, disaffected, Islamic men in every Western country who read Fatwas issued by various Islamic authorities with great fervor. They see enforcing these Fatwa as a path to paradise. These are the kind of men Eric Hoffer called "True Believers".
Some of these men are attending Universities in the United States. Some no longer attend, perhaps they dropped out, but are still in the fringes of the University community.
A very cursory search of "famous women professors" reveals that eight of them are in the Boston metropolitan area. Five of them are in the San Francisco metropolitan area. Three in Los Angeles. Two in North Carolina and two in Maryland.
Of course every University has women professors but the "famous" ones are the prime targets.
I doubt that I have many readers closely affiliated with Universities, but if you know any high-profile women in education (especially at the college/University level) this would be a very, very good time to discuss situational awareness, varying routes to work, varying where they park and the door they use to enter the building....and the joys of pepper-spray.
