Actions and Detail Panel
Taking Action on Maternity Rights
Sat 29 October 2016, 10:00 – 11:00 BST
Please come and join us as we launch our Action Plan to tackle pregnancy and maternity-related discrimination. Working together with a number of other organisations, under the group name the Alliance for Maternity Rights, we have developed a list of all the things that Government needs to do in order to tackle this shocking form of discrimination.
This issue affects women, children and their families, so bring your partners and your children and babies. We will have space to park buggies, a craft table for kids and refreshments for both children and adults.
The event will include a panel session with speakers from Maternity Action and NCT as well as hearing from a woman about her experiences of discrimination. We will hear from:
Jo Swinson, Chair of Maternity Action
Elizabeth Duff, Senior Policy Advisor,NCT
Rosalind Bragg, Director, Maternity Action
Amelia, speaking about her experience of pregnancy and maternity discrimination
We will also be screening video messages of support from Parliamentarians
The event will be live streamed as well, so if you are unable to attend in person please do log on to our youtube channel here and watch online.
We will be live tweeting from the event using the #MaternityRights and we will pass twitter comments and questions to the panel.
The Alliance for Maternity Rights consists of Maternity Action, Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, Family and Childcare Trust, Gingerbread, NCT, Prospect, Royal College of Midwives, TUC, UNISON, Unite the Union, Working Families and YESS Law.
