The Lithuanian government is going to introduce changes to the law about driving licence for women. Pursuant to the law of this Baltic country, women are supposed to undergo gynaecological examination in order to obtain a driving licence.
Such a requirement was explained with the fact that a strong pain, which is a symptom of several women’s diseases, might become the reason of a car accident. However, there have been so many claims of discrimination during the time when the law is in effect since no man is supposed to have such an examination in Lithuania. The ministry for healthcare said that there were no illnesses that could prevent a woman from proper and safe driving. One of the spokespeople of the ministry said that the law should have been cancelled long ago: “Our country looks more than strange because of it.”
