Pregnancy discrimination – twice as bad as a decade ago

To Westminster today for the launch of an excellent campaign by Maternity Action, highlighting the issue of pregnancy discrimination, which recent research has shown is twice as bad as it was a decade ago.

The Women and Equalities Committee completed an inquiry into maternity discrimination in August of last year.  The Government’s response is now 11 weeks overdue.

The group was launching three videos featuring women in low-income jobs talking about how they overcame discrimination and won their rights – a really important message.
