Pregnant then Screwed

TFS SAYS:We know that pregnancy is one of the biggest breaking points in equality and we can’t ignore the effects motherhood (and potential motherhood) is .

Pregnant then Screwed tackles the problem from different angles making a massive impact in every single woman they help but also in the problem as a whole.

Who are they:Pregnant Then Screwed is working to end the motherhood penalty, because 54,000 women are pushed out of their jobs due to pregnancy or maternity leave and 77% of working mums have encountered negative treatment at work among other things

They run a free legal advice line, a mentor scheme for women taking legal action against an employer and a flexible working helpline. They 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 they document the stories of mothers who encounter workplace discrimination. 

How can you collaborate:

Volunteer: They rely on fantastic volunteers who dedicate some oftheir time to it, see the roles that they are looking to fill here

Share your story: They also share stories of women who have encountered pregnancy and maternity discrimination in the workplace on their website to raise awareness - if you want to share your story, please contact them. 

Donate: They wouldn’t be able to support the many women that come to them for help without the kind donations received. Every appreciated donation helps  ensure that women have the practical and emotional support they need to access justice. You can donate here
