The most common place for prejudice is in the workplace. Some areas that an individual may feel discriminated against based on their whether they are male or female include the following:

Men may be discriminated against at the workplace if the business is run mostly by women, however, a lot of the time this is not the case and it is the other way around. Many men view women as not being capable enough to get the job done and feel that men will do a better job, simply because they are men. A man with not very many qualifications might find himself in the same high position that a woman did not get even though she had much better qualifications. If this happened to you or someone you know, act now! Contact a Civil Rights Attorney today.

There are several different acts that are meant to protect the rights of women, which can also go hand in hand with this gender related law. For example, the P.D.A., or the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, was created in 1978 in order to protect pregnant women from being discriminated against. Another act that protects both men and women from being discriminated against at the workplace based on their gender is the Equal Pay Act. Parental status and marital status discrimination can also coexist with this form of discrimination in some cases.

Aside from the workplace, both men and women have been discriminated against when it comes to the following:

  • Education
  • Housing
  • Applying for a loan/credit
