Give older women their full pension rights

Reason for signing

  • Despite being a partner in every possible way except having her name on the farming business account, the only pension received for her is the "top up" of Dad's pension for her as a dependent. Mum did some of the toughest, most physically demanding work anyone could do in addition to being the brains of the operation. Is she to continue to be treated as less worthy than others who just happened to be PAYE workers? Let ok after the women who made this country what it is!
