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 21 year old uni student and at some point in the future I want a family. UKIPs policies make me feel that all my hard work and effort will have been for nothing! A woman’s role is no longer purely domestic and UKIP are trying to push women back into the home. This is the 21st century. Everyone should be equal and given the same opportunities

    Because these opinions are wrong and offensive. I am ashamed that a British representative in Europe is saying this.

    Women should not be restrained from reaching the top positions because they have had a baby. In my experience, women are far more driven than men and this is what scares the old boys network.
