Abstract (Document Summary)

The group recently filed a sexual discrimination complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Commission against Wen-Do, a group that teaches self-defence to women. In Search of Justice charges that Wen- Do has been acting illegally by denying its services to men.

Moreover, says [Ross Virgin], a group member skilled in the martial arts, who asked to teach for Wen-Do, was denied employment because he's male.

Finally, Virgin claims Wen-Do is guilty of discrimination in advertising because its brochures are directed toward women.
