This paper analyzes the way in which the Chilean Congress and Courts respond to the constitutional principle of equality between man and woman. In the Congress' case, an equality typology is suggested, which is based on the criteria that would justify the differences and equalities between sexes. For the Courts, on the other hand, some cases are examined in which the difference between sexes would be a decisive factor in resolving the conflict. Finally, a basic classification is provided over the attitudes adopted.
- equal opportunity
- gender differences
