Gender discrimination in access to services
Let’s say you are a woman and you are denied services because of your gender, for example, it might be culturally unacceptable to get that kind of service based on your gender. You should know that it is illegal for anyone providing any legal services or selling any legal goods to deny you access to those services and goods based on your gender. This is clearly said in Clause 19 of the Law on Gender Equality. The law notes that it applies to all persons providing goods and services, both public and private. This means that it applies equally to public institutions as much as it does to supermarkets, pharmacies, medical clinics, etc.
