Staff in sports clubs who warn women not to lift heavy weights could be prosecuted under new equality laws.
Legislation set out under Harriet Harman’s forthcoming Equality Bill says that insinuating a woman might not be able to lift the same size weights as men could be considered ‘unlawful sex discrimination’.
A code of practice drawn up by the Equality and Human Rights Commission explaining the legal implications of the Bill lists ways in which women might be unfairly stereotyped.
It includes a long list of examples of ‘unintentional less favourable treatment’ including what might happen to a woman when she joins a gym and begins lifting weights.
