Altre informazioni

A Campaign known as the WASPI Campaign (an acronym for Women Against State Pension Inequality) are fighting to regain the pensions of those women affected by the changes. The word WASPI is synonymous with women who were born in the 1950s who have had their State Pension Age put back with little or no notice, and has come into common usage to such an extent that it is known to mean a woman born in the 1950s and is now extensively used within Parliament and in Media, by MPs and journalists alike.
