A practical guide to the law in relation to single-sex spaces has been published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) today. The guidance helps service providers to make lawful decisions about any services they offer to women and men separately, by explaining the permitted sex and gender reassignment exceptions in the Equality Act 2010.
As the statutory regulator charged with upholding equality and human rights laws and standards, we protect all people in Britain against discrimination on the basis of protected characteristics. It is an important part of our role to explain how the law works in practice.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission has today launched its Strategic Plan for 2016–19, setting out an ambitious programme to challenge discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and protect and promote human rights in Britain.
