California Will Require Large Retailers To Provide Gender-Neutral Toy Sections

California became the first state in the nation Saturday to adopt a law requiring large retail stores to provide gender-neutral toy sections under a bill signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom. The new law, which takes effect in 2024, says that retail stores with 500 or more employees must sell some toys and child-care products outside of areas specifically labeled by gender.

Newsom offered no comment on the bill signing, one of several announced in the final batch of legislative actions weighed for the year. Read more at Los Angeles Times.
