MPs need parental leave like everyone else
particularly if we want more young women to enter politics

How are we supposed to have ppl who represent us if they are not afforded maternity leave?

Our government should be leading the way with its example and this is dispicable. I couldn't walk 3 days after my C-section. Took me at least 3 weeks to gain the strength to walk up a small hill. And she'll need time to bond and feed her baby. We need men and women in every sector and that means meeting their individual needs. I hope signing helps.

It’s wrong to have no set up for maternity leave in politics. It is sexist and in this day and age unforgivable

MPs should be able to have children and not have to forfeit their career to have a family

If we want more representation of women of all ages as MPs then we must give them maternity leave, like women in other jobs!

It's 2019. This shouldn't even be an issue nowadays. Give female MPs their maternity pay.
