What is Sex Discrimination?

  1. Treat one person differently from another in determining whether such a person satisfies any requirement or condition for the provision of such aid, benefit or service;
  2. Provide different aid, benefits, or services or provide aid, benefits, or services in a different manner;
  3. Subject any person to separate or different rules or behavior, sanctions, or other treatment;
  4. Otherwise limit any person in the enjoyment of any right, privilege, advantage, or opportunity.
