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.

    This petition is very eye-opening explains UKIP’s views on other issues that people often seem to forget about due to their ability to mask their real agenda through fuelling the fire of immigration.

    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
