Baden-Württemberg: visit to the hairdresser until sunbathing: FDP youngsters fight for women

Stuttgart (dpa/lsw) - The Young Liberals (JuLis) of Baden-Württemberg are calling for information campaigns for consumers about so-called gender pricing - that, for example, women have to pay more than men at the hairdresser for the same haircut. "At the end of the day, the price for a service must be calculated based on the effort and material costs and not on gender," said the state chairman of the FDP youth organization, Max Kristmann, on Monday in a statement after the 82nd state congress on Sunday. The Südwest-JuLis also decided that prices for services should be shown transparently.

Originally, the Stuttgart district association that had submitted the application also called for an explicit law "that prohibits the pricing of services directly and indirectly on the basis of gender and requires gender-independent prices". The General Equal Treatment Act is already the legal basis, it is just not always followed, a spokesman said. Therefore the application was changed.

Among other things, the Young Liberals, who call themselves the "front organization of the Free Democrats of Baden-Württemberg", also decided to propose a motion against compulsory upper body coverings for women when bathing: "Free the nipples: For an end to the dress code and unequal treatment in the swimming pool". "Such regulations have no place in a liberal and equal society," says Kristmann. "The argument of the 'secondary sexual characteristic' is often mentioned in this discussion. That is absurd: the male beard is also such a characteristic and despite this it does not have to be covered in the swimming pool."
