WASPI Takes Protest to the
Heart of Government
Mass Women’s Demonstration on 8th March 2017 – Houses of Parliament LONDON
The Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) Campaign is organising a protest demonstration outside the Houses of Parliament in London, on the 8th March 2017.
The event aims to highlight to the wider public the hardship and unfairness suffered by women born in the 1950s, on or after the 6th April 1951, as a result of the Government’s alterations to the State Pension Age (SPA) and, in particular, the lack of notice given to the changes, by the Department for Work and Pensions.
WASPI does not object to the increase in the women’s SPA, but represents a cohort of women who have been unfairly disadvantaged by the speed of the increase, compounded by the absence of notice provided by successive Governments. In many cases, this has resulted in enormous hardship, with devastating consequences to them and their families.

“I would also want to deal with the issue of the women who have been short-changed by the increase in retirement age [and] ensure that they are given proper transitional payments, otherwise known as the WASPI women.”
