March Of The Mummies: Pregnant Then Screwed demand better childcare and working policies at nationwide rallies

Parents and their supporters marched through central London on Saturday 29 October in a rally dubbed the March of the Mummies. The march, organised by campaign group Pregnant Then Screwed, is one of several across the UK, calling for changes to childcare, working practices and parental leave that they say are discriminatory and harmful. They are demanding good quality, affordable childcare for all children, flexible working as the default and well-paid parental leave for all parents. They also want action on the gender pay gap, family poverty, and mothers feeling they have no choice but to leave the workforce.
