In 2010, the United Kingdom enacted a comprehensive Equality Act to replace nine separate pieces of anti-discrimination legislation addressing race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and age. The Equality Act is a wide-ranging statute that applies uniform ideas of discrimination and harassment across these different grounds, and imposes positive duties on public (but not private) authorities to eliminate discrimination and promote equality. The product of over 13 years of research and advocacy, it is a thoroughly modern piece of legislation that seeks to advance formal, substantive and transformative equality through law.
