Yes, gender can also be used. But see the lines below.
Sex Discrimination Act
The two pieces of legislation in Great Britain which make provision relating to discrimination on the grounds of sex are the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 and the Equal Pay Act 1970. They apply equally to women and men. There are similar laws in Northern Ireland.
The Sex Discrimination Act
The Sex Discrimination Act 1975 (SDA) offers protection against unlawful discrimination to both men and women. It makes sex discrimination unlawful in employment, vocational training, education, the provision and sale of goods, facilities and services, premises and the exercise of public functions.
In employment and vocational training, it is also unlawful to discriminate against someone on the grounds that a person is married or a civil partner or on the ground of gender reassignment.
I hope it has helped. Merry Xmas!
