The Irish Constitution contains a general provision that allows the State to give "due regard to the differences of capacity, physical and moral, and of social function" between men and women (Article 40.1). Gender equality legislation was introduced in the 1970s after Ireland became a member of the European Economic Community (EEC). The introduction of broader equality legislation together with new equality infrastructure in the 2000s brought in protection against discrimination on nine grounds (including age, disability, sexual orientation, religion and ethnicity) in both employment and access to services. Gender machinery is centred on the statutory body for the promotion of equality, the Equality Authority, and for the enforcement of equal treatment legislation, the Equality Tribunal.
