I am excited to be interviewing the founder of Pregnant then Screwed, Joeli Brearley, this week to talk about her project and her own personal experiences with discrimination.
Pregnant then Screwed is a place for women to report their discrimination anonymously and get free legal advice from a helpline. The project highlights the on-going mistreatment of pregnant women and mothers in the workplace and the amount of women who are speaking out against it.
The volunteers of the group has one mission and that is to eliminate pregnancy and maternity discrimination.
Joeli was made redundant in 2011 when she told her main client about her pregnancy news and without any further communication she was sacked.
I will be discussing her mistreatment whilst also finding out more about the Pregnant then Screwed project and how it has opened up a dialogue into the struggles of being a mother in the workplace.
