About March Of The Mummies Glasgow

On Tuesday 31st October at 12 midday people across the UK will march in support of better rights for mothers.

Mothers get a raw deal, they encounter acute discrimination with 54,000 women a year being pushed out of their job for daring to procreate and 77% of working mums enduring negative or discriminatory treatment in the workplace. Motherhood is also a key contributor to the gender pay gap with women who have had children by the age of 33 earning 15 per cent less than their peers who remained childless. Women even face discrimination for simply having a womb with 40% of employers saying they would avoid hiring a woman of childbearing age. Yet, underutilisation of women’s skills costs the Uk economy up to £36 billion.

Far from improving, the situation is drastically deteriorating with the number of mothers who experience discrimination almost doubling in the last 10 years.

March of the Mummies will take place in Trafalgar Square and we will march to Parliament Square where we will present MPs with 5 demands for change. Sister marches will take place in Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and Manchester.

The march is being supported by the Women’s Equality Party, the Fawcett Society and the charity, Working Families amongst others. We have received confirmation that high profile celebrities will attend. The MP Caroline Lucas will be speaking alongside Helen Skelton, Sophie Walker (leader of the Women’s Equality Party) and Anna Whitehouse (a prolific blogger and campaigner).

The event will be attended by families who will dress up as mummies (the walking dead kind) to represent the archaic legislation that is in place, which in turn creates gender inequality in the home and the workplace.

March of the Mummies 5 demands:
• Increase the time limit to raise a tribunal claim from 3 months to (at least) 6 months
• Require companies to report on how many flexible working requests are made and how many are granted
• Give fathers access to 6 weeks non-transferable paternity leave paid at 90% of salary
• Give the self-employed access to statutory shared parental pay
• Subsidise childcare from 6 months old, rather than 3 years
