Never one to let up the pressure :-) I've just sent this to AENA - comments?
>I quote from your equal opportunity policy, as posted on this website:
>"Indirect discrimination occurs when a requirement or condition is applied which, whether intentional or not,
> adversely affects a considerably larger proportion of people of one race, sex or marital status than another
> and cannot be justified on grounds other than race, sex or marital status.
> The Association regards discrimination, as described above, as gross misconduct and any employee of the
> Association, participant or volunteer who discriminates against any other person will be liable to appropriate
> disciplinary action"
>Given the above, could you please explain to me why no AENA-affiliated league invites or accepts male players, and why AENA provides no tournaments or events for male players - nor has done for the past 10+ years, despite the repeated requests of a number of affiiated male players?
>Can you assure me that, again given the above policy, you will take disciplinary action against any county or league which refuses to provide facilities for competitive men's play?
>I have copied this message to several other places for information and comment, and will forward your responses there also.
