Women fighting pensions injustice were among the guests at a flag-raising event in Clydebank to mark International Women's Day (IWD) on Wednesday.

The West Dunbartonshire Women Against State Pension Injustice (WASPI) group said they were "proud" to be invited by Provost Douglas McAllister to celebrate the global event to fight gender inequality.

The WASPI campaign was founded in 2015 to fight for justice for all women born in the 1950s affected by changes to the state pension age.

Local MSP Marie McNair was also in attendance on the same day as a rally took place at Parliament Square in London to protest at the impact of a UK Government decision to raise the state pension age for women from 60 to 66.

Liz Daly, WASPI co-ordinator, who was in attendance at Solidarity Plaza, told the Post: "The theme of this year’s IWD is embracing equity - equity, not equality, is what 1950s women required.

"A level playing field before raising the retirement age to 66 with no notice."
