3 hikes in pension age(s) for women is unfair

I would like the current government to listen to and show compassion for the women of this country now nearing pension age. A lot of us started work at 15. Most of us did not enjoy equal rights or pay. We did not receive maternity benefit. These are historic differences which set our generation apart from younger women. The law was different then. It feels like £15,000 and 6 years has been looted from my life. To save money for whom? My children? My grandchildren? This pension bill is ill considered and unfair. It is not advertised so a lot of women don't even know.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

It did not have a clear statement explaining what action you want the government to take.
