I READ your report of South Lakes and Lancashire women “fighting on” in their misguided campaign against alleged state pensions injustice with complete dismay and incredulity (Gazette, October 10, 'WASPI women vow to fight on').

If there is any historical “injustice” it is the fact women (who live on average four years longer than men) received their state pension at age 60: five years before men. Therefore, until the recent correction women were paid nine whole years more state pension than their male counterparts.

The change to equalise pension ages for both males and females is a reasonable compromise but clearly still to women’s advantage. Some, like me, regard this as the real injustice but can’t be bothered to fight it.
