The BackTo60 members presumably want just what their title says, but WASPI is a completely different group.
It is, and unfortunately the name WASPI is now being used as a generic for every woman caught in the pension trap.
WASPI does not speak for all the groups out there, and has probably delayed any settlement because of ego clashes and infighting.
It has the distinct advantage over groups like We Paid In, You Pay Out, and Back to 60 that it has a catchy name that sticks in the mind; but it has its own 'ask' which is to get a 'bridging' pension for women between the pension age they were promised and the one that has been imposed (not a full pension).
They charge for membership (about £20 a month, I think), which sets them apart from the groups who represent women who are in real poverty because of the change, and they specifically distance themselves from the other groups who are fighting for 50s born women.
