Ah -see government on ‘damn those pesky courts holding us to account’ section of trump playbook. Not just sign of weakness they can’t defend their decisions, if they are happy denying refugees their rights, they will happily also ignore yours in future …

When at theological college, training for ministry, I informed my tutor I was pregnant. “But no student’s had a baby whilst trying before@ was the spluttered answer. My reply, “I think you’ll find they have - they just didn’t give birth to them”.

If you want to help refugees do some homework about who is running and why...you can debate whether military intervention works, and disagree either way, but give them the respect of learning their stories and who they are rather than trying to score points..

Starting late to politics, as until I turned 50 I couldn't afford or justify a babysitter to go to meetings after work. Enjoy your baby, shape the future.

I agree & have my own personal experiences. Being a mum does not make you any less able & it goes against every grain of the movement to suggest otherwise. I am proud to be a mum but I am also proud of all I have achieved and hope to achieve in the future.

Black women reveal shocking racism they faced in the UK’s healthcare system during pregnancy and childbirth, in a landmark study that sheds light on the country’s damning death rate for expectant Black mothers. Well done

Not sure that sanction ever goes away. Structurally political meetings are tea time and bedtime. Perception is that you are a mum first and that should be your priority. If you find a way to balance everything then you are clearly not putting the children first& a bad mum

Fuming this is still happening as it did to me. If you don’t have kids as a female candidate the question was what if you do, and if you do have kids - are you sure you should be in politics? You’ve shown that it is totally possible to be a fab representative. Keep fighting!

Agree- fwiw I'm asking today about politics because frankly I think we assume somehow political movements are open and unbiased so never ask about experiences to check if thats true. If those seeking to change the world carry the default with them then change won't happen so...

the default is so ingrained that sometimes we don't even see it but it still blocks out the contribution others can make - thank you for sharing

Am sorry to hear that - Feels like this is a conversation we need to have not just in politics but across the piece!

We’re seeing a wave of job losses across the high street, which could lead to ghost towns, as businesses are forced to shut. Unless Ministers provide extra help to firms, through a Hospitality and High Street fightback fund that wave will become a tsunami.

I worked in a print house. Only woman, single mother. They were extremely kind but used to ask (with some bewilderment) who did my cooking, washing, car maintenance, etc . . . Keep at it Stella.

I remember going for an interview to become a bus driver. The manager said to me "we don't usually hire women, as they tend to get married and have children". This was in 2002.
