Today thousands of men and women marched across six UK cities to advocate for better support for working parents.

This morning Tim asked

Tomorrow, thousands of us will march in London to demand recognition, respect and change for working parents. Why is this so important? 54,000 women a year are pushed out of their job for getting pregnant and 77% of working mums endure negative or discriminatory treatment in the workplace. These numbers
