Fawcett Society: sex discrimination law review

Fawcett Society: sex discrimination law review
18/05/2017
The Fawcett Society has launched a sex discrimination law review which will include a consideration of the sex equality legislation in NI.








The Fawcett Society has launched a sex discrimination law review which will include a consideration of the sex equality legislation in Northern Ireland and the differences between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. The review has been established in response to the concern that rights may be eroded or weakened as a result of Brexit. It is inviting submissions from organisations/individuals in Northern Ireland.

This is an important review and we would encourage you to submit evidence.  It is clear that in Northern Ireland men and women have less protection against sex discrimination than in other parts of the UK. The Equality Commission has called for action to address the significant gaps and weaknesses in our sex equality laws. It has also called for no erosion of equality laws after the UK leaves the EU.

For further information see our recommendations on:
 



Submissions should be sent to the Fawcett Society at lawreview@fawcettsociety.org.uk before 3 July 2017.
