This paper provides a study into the different areas of discrimination law affecting inequality amongst women. It considers whether equality really exists and what still needs to be done to ensure women are more accurately represented in today's society.
From the Paper:"Anti-discrimination legislation has been enacted in an attempt to eradicate the prevalent inequalities within the world of work. The law has developed two separate and distinct routes with respect to equality. One route expounds the equal treatment of men and women, a concept key to the liberal feminists; and the other is a specific rights based route which relates directly to pregnancy cases, which will be discussed further below. This latter is what the maternal feminists of the early nineteenth century would have chosen; that the law should accommodate the differences between men and women, with particular reference to women as mothers. The claim is that where women deviate from the male norm, the law should acknowledge this."
