"It is not illegal to limit the job ad reach according to locality. It is illegal to limit the job ad reach according to gender."

Mmhm. Quite so. Perhaps then you can explain these businesses and their hiring policy?

or, how about all these jobs that are advertised as female only? Granted, some of them should be (female models, gym instructors, carers etc.) but some should not (modelling agent, Sales assistant, early years practitioner etc.).

If people want equality then they need to practice equality. The Law should be applied equally to all, and opportunity should be open to all.

And yes, these companies are breaking the law.
