Overview The Sex Discrimination Act 1984 gives effect to Australia’s international human rights obligations and promotes equality between women and men. The Act protects people from unfair treatment on the basis of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, intersex status, marital or relationship status, pregnancy and breastfeeding. It also protects workers with family responsibilities and makes sexual harassment against the law.
