ABSTRACT
The article discusses the discrimination experienced by women in the workforce. The Gender Equality Duty regulation, which was established in April 2007 following the Employment Equality Regulations 2006, was labeled as the biggest change to sex equality legislation since the Sex Discrimination Act. The regulation aims to advance gender equality and remove discrimination. Figures show that half of the workforce is women but only in 9% of management grades and 2% of senior management. Everyone is advised to assert the right to contribute to activities and grow in the workplace and the freedom to express beliefs and views.
