Last week in the European Parliament, UKIP MEP, Stuart Agnew said: "Women don't have the ambition to get to the top, something gets in the way. It's called a baby... Those females who really want to get to the top do so".

In modern Britain, we don't think women should have to choose between being a mother and being ambitious.

If you agree with us, sign the petition and let UKIP know that they can't take Britain back to the 1950's without a fight.

UKIP doesn't have any female MEPs, their last one resigned saying that Nigel Farage "should be in the kitchen or in the bedroom". And it shows, they want to scrap paid maternity leave and get rid of legislation that prevents employers discriminating against people because of their gender, religion, or their race.

Help us take a stand against UKIP and sign this petition.

 

This petition is part of the Action 2014 campaign.

    I am a director of a company AND a mother to two kids. I could not have fine this without maternity pay and the support of a company who value me

    I am a welder in a workshop full of men. I’m the only female there and I still love my job! With views like UKIP I would never have made it to where I am today!

    Because I have rights. I am a human being, regardless of my gender. I deserve the same respect as men. I have been living on this planet the same as everyone else and I will not be repressed.

    Because I want to live in a civilised country not some rat infested primitive throwback of a country which would show my dear mother such a lack of respect and consideration

    Paid maternity leave is good for families and supports our workforce. I’m proud to be British because of its religious tollerance and equitable laws – I wouldn’t want that to change

    I believe that we should support families there won’t be much of a society without strong family units who have enough money to live a forfilling life. Many women are the main bread winners take away maternity pay and many people won’t be able to afford to have children. It will put greater pressure on the state in services and benefits. It will discourage women out of work. It will make society less equal. It devalues the role of child birth.

    Because UKIP are a ridiculous Mickey Mouse party who promote ONE policy on immigration in the hopes that nobody will look into the rest of their policies – if they did, I don’t believe that anybody would vote UKIP. Thank you for doing what you can to make sure people are aware of what these jokers really are – I am doing my best to do the same! x
