The Fair Housing Act covers victims of domestic violence under gender/sex.  Therefore policies that have to do with housing which penalize victims of domestic violence because they are victims of domestic violence are prohibited.  For example, Landlords cannot evict someone because they are victims of domestic violence; Landlords cannot refuse to rent to someone because they are a victim of domestic violence.

Under Landlord-Tenant law in the state of Oregon, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking cannot be discriminated against. Landlords may not evict, threaten to evict, fail to renew the rental agreement/lease, increase the rent, decrease services or refuse to enter into a rental agreement with someone who is a victim of any of the above. In addition a victim can end the lease early without penalty; change the locks for safety; and/or ask the landlord to divide the lease in order to evict the abuser from the apartment.
