Anti-discrimination law refers to the law on the right of people not to suffer social discrimination, to be treated equally. Some countries mandate that in employment, in consumer transactions and in political participation people must be dealt with on an equal basis regardless of sex, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity and sometimes religious and political opinions.
Examples of anti-discrimination law include,
- Age Discrimination Act of 1975
- Racial Discrimination Act 1975
- Disability discrimination act
- Anti-Discrimination Act 1977
- Title IX
One notable exception provided for in many nations is the exclusion of women from holding certain positions in the military, such as serving in front line combat capacities or aboard submarines. The reason given varies, for example, the British Royal Navy cite the reason for not allowing women to serve aboard submarines as medical and related to the safety of an unborn fetus, rather than that of combat effectiveness.
