Calling all 1950s born women - WASPI campaign

Postby caroley4 » Wed 02 Nov, 2016 11:52 am

Women born in the 1950s - You will not get your state pension at 60

I and another Hertford lady have recently started a local group in Hertford and East Herts supporting Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI). We are campaigning for 'fair transitional state pension arrangements for women born on or after 6.4.1951'

We would love you to join our group so please come and support us on Sat Nov 12th when we will be canvassing in Hertford at the farmer's market between 10am and 2pm .

Find out more about WASPI: http://www.waspi.co.uk

Support WASPI by joining the local group - Email: hertfordandeasthertswaspi@gmail.com

Do you mean that you will be pushing for equality with Men ?

The linked web page says they support that, yes.

The linked web page does indeed claim to be supportive of equality with men.
But equality with men is the end-game of what they are protesting about !


You can look at in two ways -
- Women are hard done by with the new changes to pension age
- Women have got away with retiring earlier than men for too long, and it's about time there was equality
