Gender Equality Duty
The gender equality duty is the biggest change in sex equality legislation in thirty years, since the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act (1977). The GED is a legal and enforceable duty contained within the Equality Act (2006). The GED requires public authorities to promote equality between women and men, and eliminate unlawful sex discrimination and harassment. The duty will affect all aspects of policy making, service provision, and employment practices to ensure that they reflect the diverse needs of women and men. The gender duty does not mean treating everybody the same. It requires public authorities to demonstrate that they treat women and men fairly to achieve equality.
