Pregnant Then Screwed
Working to end the motherhood penalty
We run a free legal advice line, a mentor scheme for women taking legal action against an employer and a flexible working helpline. We lobby the government for legislative change, organise events to help mums find work that works for them, support mums to start a career in politics, and we document the stories of mothers who encounter workplace discrimination. Together we will stop women getting screwed for using their uterus.
Make flexible working work for everyoneFlexible working (part time, flexi hours, home working, compressed hours and job share) is good for the economy. It increases productivity, staff wellbeing, staff retention and company profits. The problem is there’s a huge disconnect between the 9 out of 10 people who want to work flexibly and the 1 in 10 jobs that are currently advertised as flexible. Flexible working could protect our economy for the future, research by McKinsey shows that enabling women to achieve their full potential in the workplace, including through widening flexible working, could add £148 billion to the UK economy by 2030; and when fathers work flexibly and share the childcare, mothers are twice as likely to advance in their careers compared to when fathers work traditionally. Flexible working should not be seen as a perk for favoured employees but as a normal way to work in the modern world.
