Anti-discrimination law refers to the law on the right of people to be treated equally. Some countries mandate that in employment, in consumer transactions, and in political participation people must be dealt with on an equal basis regardless of sex, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, mental, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression/dysphoria, sex characteristics, religious, creed, or individual political opinions.

Antidiscrimination


The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is held every year on 21 March. On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people in a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid country laws in Sharpeville, South Africa.
