The Fawcett Society has launched a major review of the UK’s sex discrimination laws in response to the risk that long-established rights could be eroded or weakened as a result of Brexit and the UK leaving the EU single market. The review will also consider the effectiveness of the current laws and how best to balance the rights of the individual with the responsibilities of the organisation.
The Sex Discrimination Law Review will be headed by Dame Laura Cox DBE, a retired High Court Justice, and co-ordinated by equality law expert Gay Moon. Panel members include a number of leading QCs and equality law experts.
The Fawcett Society want to gather a wide range of evidence and so we are inviting individuals, organisations, legal experts, employers and trade unions with particular expertise to submit written evidence ahead of each panel session.
