NATIONALITY: CHILDREN OF BRITISH MOTHERS

Comment 12th July 2010

The ongoing discrimination against the right of British women to pass on their nationality to children born abroad before 1983 should be scrapped. While this was partially rectified in 2010, this "category" of citizen has to pay a registration fee, and is subject to screening by the Home Office before thay can claim their birthright.  Children born to British fathers are automatically British and merely have to apply for a passport.  This renders British mothers and their children born before 1983  second class citizens.

Why does this matter?

The UK prides itself as an example of freedom and human rights.  Yet these discriminatory legislative provisions are deeply discriminatory and continue to undermine the rights of women.
