March of the Mummies

for Hallowe’en 31st October – march happening simultaneously in six UK cities, this is the London march at Parliament Square. Families dressed up as mummies (the walking dead kind) to represent the archaic legislation that is currently in place on working motherhood.

Their five demands:

  1. Increase the time limit to raise a tribunal claim from 3 months to (at least) 6 months
  2. Require companies to report on how many flexible working requests are made and how many are granted
  3. Give both parents access to 6 weeks parental leave paid at 90% of salary
  4. Give the self-employed access to statutory shared parental pay
  5. Subsidise childcare from 6 months old, rather than 3 years

    Organised by Pregant then Screwed
