On 29 June, thousands of women from across the country marched on the Houses of Parliament to protest against unfair changes to women’s state pensions.
WASPI – Women Against State Pension Inequalities- wore sashes and waved banner to highlight the plight of women who were born in the 1950s and have suddenly found themselves having to work up to six years longer to claim their state pensions. There was even a 200-strong choir who sang the WASPI anthem on College Green as part of the rally.
I went out to meet the rally and it was great to see so many women turn out to campaign against this injustice. I hope that this will make the Government realise the strength of feeling around this issue and look again at the arrangements.
