BBC caption: Construction sites are typically male-dominated areas
Our thanks to a number of people for this BBC piece. The end of it:
Ms Loeckx said men were more likely to suffer discrimination in shops, beauty parlours and kindergartens.
With women, discrimination came more often from transport firms, butchers, builders and taxi businesses.
The IEFH’s annual report (in French) says another issue it handled was “ladies only” events staged by two cinema chains. Men who wanted to go with their female partners to the events were refused entry.
After a complaint from the IEFH the cinemas agreed to admit men, but kept the label “ladies only”, arguing that the promotions were an example of positive discrimination.
