Baroness Altmann writes in the Daily Mail that the Court of Appeal judgment last week is a blow to the many women who believe the sharp increase in their state pension age from 2010 discriminated against them.

However, she adds that women have always been – and still are - second-class citizens in the UK pension system. Altmann contends that women often lose out because of their societal role. “More women work in lower-paid sectors and are often those caring for family, so they earn less than men of their age, work part?time and have shorter working lives and lower lifetime earnings than men,” she writes.
