Ben Jones :

Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Sadly there are no laws that can help you in this situation. The only relevant laws would have been those related to discrimination, if due to your gender you were being treated less favourably when compared to a member of the opposite sex. However, in this case you are all of the same sex and there is no issue of discrimination. It is not like the women are being treated differently or less favourably than the men - so the only potentially relevant law would not apply in this case. There would be nothing else available that you can use to try and change the way you are being treated and it would be a matter of negotiation with the people that make the decisions.

I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you wanted to hear but I hope you understand I have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands and sometimes this does unfortunately mean delivering bad news from time to time. Please let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
