this Daily Mail article

Theresa May yesterday put the brakes on a feminist campaign to reform ‘sexist’ marriage certificates.

Please check to see whether your MP has signed this
Early Day Motion and if not email them via

I've signed and shared on Facebook, will share on twitter later as well.

My MP hasn't signed the EDM, I would happily write to the pompous twunt, but he is a pompous twunt, who thinks women are there to be looked at. I think if I tried to engage him in reasonable discourse again, my spleen would try and strangle me misquotes Douglas Adams

This is such bullshit (the decision, not the petition!). So angry.

I imagine it was "complex and costly" to alter marriage certificates to include gay couples. But also correct and important. As is your campaign.
