Which of the listed facilities that advertise 'women only' or 'ladies only' (or similarly described) swimming sessions, provide an environment that is exclusively single sex, i.e., for females only, and which facilities provide a session that is mixed sex, i.e., do not exclude males who identify as a woman?

3. Please send me a copy of the council policy or policies that cover the provision of 'women only' or 'ladies only' (or similarly described) swimming sessions.
