Join Pregnant Then Screwed this Halloween as they march from Westminster to Trafalgar Square to demand recognition, respect and change for working mothers.
Together with Working Families, The Lullaby Trust, Yess Law, the Organise Platform, Parental Pay Equality and Bristol Women’s Voice the March of the Mummies seeks to highlight the issue of maternity discrimination which haunts 77 percent of new mums, and pushes one in nine pregnant women out of their job (EHRC, 2016).
The protest will happen at the same time as its sister marches in Glasgow, Cardiff. Manchester, Newcastle and Belfast.
