Is it acceptable to group individuals on the basis of gender?

In Europe insurers are not permitted to discriminate on the basis of gender when offering insurance products. This means that women will experience a steep increase in car insurance costs as their risk is now pooled with males who are far less safe. The biggest impact is the very young. Likewise women will pay more for life insurance. Offsetting this the fact women live longer can no longer count against them when taking pensions.

The impact of this is likely to be more young male drivers and fewer safe female drivers, which may not be so good for society.
