Calling on Ragged Ass Barbers to End its Policy of Sex Discrimination

Calling on Ragged Ass Barbers to End its Policy of Sex Discrimination

We are writing to you as concerned members of the broader Regina community asking you to reconsider your policy of providing only men with traditional men's hair cuts, refusing to serve women who would like a traditional men's hair cut. We believe this is sex discrimination and therefore illegal under the Human Rights Code. We ask that you change your policy so that anyone who wants a traditional men's hair cut may access your specialized services.

Why is this important?

This petition arises after a local woman requested a traditional men's hair cut from Ragged Ass Barbers and was refused service because she is a woman.

Reasons for signing

  • I signed because it is right and because some elements of the opposing view are spewing poorly researched false information about sex segregated services and their prevelance
  • It only makes sense
