‘Pregnancy and maternity’ are protected characteristics under the Equality Act, and as such, discrimination, harassment or unfair treatment arising from such are now illegal. The University, as a public authority is required to uphold this policy. See more information on the University’s Equality and Diversity Policy here. Or look at WomCam’s campaign for student parents here.
Feel free to get in contact with the CUSU Women’s Officer to ask any questions you might have about being a student parent.
