Join Pregnant Then Screwed in London this Halloween for ‘The March of the Mummies’.

It has been 19 months since the Government commissioned report into pregnancy and maternity discrimination revealed that 54,000 women a year are pushed out of their job for daring to procreate. This figure has almost doubled in the last 10 years.

Since this report, the Government has stalled and stalled, paying lip service to the issue but doing naff all to improve the outlook for working mums. In that time 84,500 women have lost their jobs having an enormous effect on their confidence, mental health and long term career prospects.

On Tuesday 31st October, individuals and families across the UK will come together to demand recognition, respect and change for working mums. We have 5 demands which we will be presenting to MPs.

The Rally and the march will take place on Tuesday 31st October from 12pm - 2pm. The starting point will be The North Terrace, Trafalgar Square, and we’d love as many people as possible to dress as mummies (the walking dead kind!).
