Woman drivers pay the price of equality as their insurance premiums soar (but drops for men) , insurers are no longer able to use gender as a factor when pricing insurance.’ Opponents of the gender rules had argued – unsuccessfully – that women deserved to pay less because, statistically they were less of a risk so deserved to pay lower premiums.

But the EU ruled that despite this it statistical trend was wrong to discriminate on grounds of gender.
