Our local Constitutional Club has a gentlemen only

Customer Question

Our local Constitutional Club has a gentlemen only membership for Full Members, ladies can join as an Associate Member. They are saying that the law in January states that all ladies got to become Full Members and Associate Members are against the law. Is this correct?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

I do not quite understand - they are saying ladies only need to become associate or full whereas men can only become full members?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
At the moment Gents are the only FULL members and ladies are Associate members they are saying that in January ladies have to be Full members doing away with Associate members. Can the club still be a Gentleman only FULL members club.
Expert:  Ash replied 10 months ago.

No. This is discrimination. Everyone must be treated equally. If not then it's a breach of the Equality Act 2010.

They can't just have one set of rules and another set for others.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

This club is a PRIVATE MEMBERS CLUB will this make any difference? I know other clubs that are run on Gentleman only establishments.
