Professor Sandra Fredman Gives Evidence to the Women and Equalities Commission

by | Nov 17, 2016

On Wednesday 16 November 2016, OxHRH Director, Professor Sandra Fredman along with Dr Panos Kapotas (University of Portsmouth), Karon Monaghan QC (Discrimination Law Association) and Professor Satvinder Juss (King’s College London) gave evidence to the Women’s and Equalities Commission how equality legislation will be effected after leaving the EU and how best to ensure strong equality protection going forward.

Drawing on a report submitted by OxHRH to the Commission, Professor Fredman argued the importance of understanding that equality is a fundamental value. She called for equality legislation to include a preamble so that courts are guided to interpret equality protections broadly and generous and that any reasons for limiting equality be justified at a high level.
