Australian Sex Commissioner: Equal Rights Act Discriminates…Against Men!

[The Australian] THE Sex Discrimination Act actually discriminates against men and urgently needs to be fixed to give them the same rights as women.

Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick yesterday admitted elements of the 25-year-old legislation favoured women at the expense of men and should be overhauled to give both sexes equal rights.

In the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission’s submission to the Senate Committee Inquiry on the effectiveness of the act, Ms Broderick argued that men didn’t have access to the same rights and entitlements as women if they believed they had been “indirectly” discriminated against in a workplace situation.
