WomansPlaceUK, sex not gender, protected characteristics, model letter, local councils, gender incorrect, campaignSex is a protected characteristic.

The Equality Act (2010) identifies 9 protected characteristics.

They are:



gender reassignment

marriage and civil partnership

pregnancy and maternity

religion or belief



sexual orientation

These protected characteristics exist to ensure that everyone is treated equally and fairly and to guard against discrimination.

It is important that these protected characteristics are correctly listed, yet lots of councils list gender instead of sex.
