'I was sacked for being pregnant'

Joeli Brearley explains how her employers, a charity, left her a voicemail telling her she was sacked after she told them she was four months pregnant.

She has since founded a group fighting for better rights for pregnant women, called Pregnant then Screwed. She says 54,000 women a year are forced out of their jobs due to pregnancy.
