Abstract

It is now well over 25 years since the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act rendered illegal the use of selection practices based on sex of candidate and the giving of differential careers advice to the two sexes. The early - and arguably optimistic - assumptions were that removal of the means to discriminate would lead eventually to the system reaching an "equilibrium" in which the sexes would be evenly distributed throughout the workforce. Such early optimism has been shown to be misplaced, and the distribution of men and women in the workplace remains segregated in most areas of activity.
