No More Ladies Night in Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Human Rights declares ladies night "gender discrimination."

The ever-popular "ladies night" at bars and clubs is under fire in Minnesota. On June 4, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights described practice of offering women reduced or free drinks and entry gender discrimination. "Gender-based pricing violates the Human Rights Act," department Commissioner James Kirkpatrick said in a statement.

An ongoing investigation suggests men were denied "full and equal enjoyment" at five bars in the Twin Cities area that held ladies nights.
