Join us for March of the Mummies London.
March Of The Mummies is a national protest organised by Pregnant Then Screwed on Saturday 29th October 2022.
Each march is family friendly and although the subject matter is very serious, the marches are fun events with face painters and music. We encourage everyone to dress in Halloween fancy dress (hence the name - March of the Mummies)

What Are Our Demands?
1) Good quality affordable childcare for all children
2) Flexible working as the default
3) Ring fenced, properly paid parental leave for all parents
Childcare providers are falling like dominos, mothers are dropping out of the workforce in droves, the gender pay gap increased in 2021, and more families are now living in poverty. Have you had enough yet? These are political choices made by our Government and the only way we make them listen is if we organise. On Saturday 29th October we will be marching in 11 cities across the UK to demand that the Prime Minister prioritise: childcare, parental leave and flexible working. Please join us, we need you!
March of the Mummies is a protest for families to shine a light on the UKs appalling record
➡️We have the second most expensive childcare system in the world due to years of underfunding from our Government
➡️We have the third worst ranking maternity pay, and the least generous paternity leave, in Europe
➡️Mothers face a pay penalty of 45% lower earnings in the 6 years after giving birth
➡️3 in 4 job adverts fail to mention flexible working, yet 82% of Brits want to work flexibly
