Avoiding and Dealing with Sex Discrimination


As modern society has discovered, women have the ability to perform with equal skill and success in virtually every field engaged in by men, from employment to sport. Yet discrimination on the basis of sex has a long history and its residual effects still operate to keep the pay of many women lower, and opportunities fewer, than those available to men.

Of course, although it is less common, men too can be subjected to unlawful sex discrimination.

  • Understand exactly what the term sex discrimination means
  • Recognise how it occurs in practice within the context of direct and indirect discrimination
