Women don't want Equality for State Pension Age (Conspiracy / Strange)

Not about equality.
It's about the government moving the goal posts and not giving these women sufficient notice.

From the spectator

How come, then, anyone takes seriously the pressure group known as WASPI, which claims to represent ‘almost 3.5 million women born in the 1950s who are suffering because they weren’t told by the Government that their state pension age would be increasing, and who now have no time to put in place alternative financial arrangements to see them through to the new state retirement age’? Yes, they were told. We were all told. Ken Clarke announced it in his first Budget. It was all over the news. There is no excuse for any woman in her 50s not to be aware of the change, and to have had ample time to prepare for it. And if any have had their heads buried in the sand the consequences are not exactly dire: they will either have to dip into their personal pension pots or else do what men have been doing since 1925: work until 65.
