Pregnant and Productive - 23-02-2005
Olympic gold medal athelete Denise Lewis is backing the campaign to protect woem from losing their jobs when they become pregnant.

Denise suffered first hand from discrimination whilst pregnant. But for 30,000 women a year, having a baby costs them their job.

Nearly half of all women who are pregnant at work experience some form of discrimination.

A fifth lose their job, or lose out on pay or promotion, simply for being pregnant.

The figures come from ground-breaking new research commissioned by the EOC for its investigation into pregnancy discrimination in the British workplace.

The Pregnant and Productive campaign is calling for an end to this discrimination. The Government, employers, trade unions and the others are working together to find workable solutions, so that pregnancy can be a more positive experience for all concerned.

Denise says "Women should not suffer at work for just being pregnant. I would urge everyone to get behind the 'Pregnant and Productive' campaign and pledge their support."
