The Sex Discrimination (Amendment) Bill 2020 was passed by the Legislative Council on March 17, 2021. By introducing protection for women from harassment based on breastfeeding under the Sex Discrimination Ordinance (SDO), the Bill represents another major step in safeguarding the right to breastfeed, following legislation last year against breastfeeding discrimination under the Discrimination Legislation (Miscellaneous Amendments) Ordinance 2020. Both prohibitions will take effect on 19 June 2021. Click here for the statement from the Equal Opportunities Commission.
