Until the same number of men as women "retire early" to take care of elderly parents/parents-in-law & the same number of men as women take career breaks to look after young children, then true equality is never going to happen. But if we don't at least PRETEND that we are getting on track then it will definitely never happen.
Perception appears to be everything & currently women appear not to be 100% job focussed, whilst for some reason men do.

I'm sure I read somewhere that this 'bridging pension' equates to the full State pension for ALL women born on or before 31 December 1959. I assume that some numpty had advised them that by calling it a 'bridging pension' then the sex equality laws wouldn't apply, ie same for all men born in the 1950s.
but despite several asking, they have yet to say what that percentage would be.
It will rise to 1.40% from June
