WASPI is a campaigning group fighting for fair pensions for this big group of women. The equalisation of pensions between men and women happened so quickly that no one had time to make arrangements for the change. 

The Derbyshire contingent of the WASPI campaign group went to County Hall to present their case.

Marie Hall of WASPI said:

"The meeting went well and received a standing ovation. This show only heightened our emotions and we all clapped very loud when passed. On the steps we sang the Waspi anthem and our rendition was heard far and wide as we sang loud and proud in readiness for June 29th in London."
