By JEAN SHARP CP Wutea's EdUw Feminism has been happen- ing for a long time. What's new is that it has shortened its skirts, picked up Us tempo and turned radical. Old-style feminists wwked patiently for specific rights within the framework of exist- ing social institutions. i New feminists are working for revolution. They say injus- tices are part of the old insti- tutions, and that stereotyped sex roles will not change with- out profound changes in the structure of society. Their point of view makes explosive dinner table conver- sation. Old hands are inclined to talk about equal pay and op- portunity, tax changes and sometimes birth control and abortion. New feminists talk about the toys a baby is given, about educational and "life- style" options, about men's magazines, and such jokes as: "Why should 1 buy a dish- washer? I married one." A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press found many shades of attitude among women who work for women's rights, but a shared conviction that all written should know what the femin- ists mean. LOOK FOR SPARK New Feminist Dorothy Cur- zon of Toronto says: "We feel every woman is potentially a member of a feminist group. Somewhere in her is, a spark of opposition to the way women are treated." Toronto lawyer Margaret Hyndman, representative of women who came to maturity before the Second World War, says: "I think, like most Ca- nadian women of my age, that if you scratch the surface you'll find a frustrated femin- ist because we never had the opportunity to carry a ban- ner." Miss Hyndman was named a KG in 1938. She has. been in- ternational president of the Business and Professional, Women's Clubs. She says wryly that time has changed the attitudes of. some of her male business ac- quaintances toward women's rights. "I find it makes a great dif- ference to men who have grown daughters who now want into Mrs. Curzon is a chartered accountant and teacher at Sheridan College. She says she is accepted in her profes- sion as "a funny kind of man." "Men can' understand if you ask them to think about, what they would have to give up if they became women tomor- row." Miss Hyndman and others say things have improved for women in the last 45 years and UK onus now is on women to take advantage of the gains. They do not claim all the work is done, and Miss Hynd- man'! hst of priorities for what stiH needs doing is at the core of the activities of many traditional women's groups- "I would like to see equal- pay legislation brought into line. The politicians gave up just encugh to keep women quiet! There should be a' sex- discrimination clause. I would like to see more women aspir- ing to higher positions in busi- ness pusWng a little har- der for promotion. More polit- ical participation is a must." MacLean-Evans is an Edmcntoo alderman and for- mer Canadian B.'and P. pres- ident. Her comments reflect a f e e 1 i n g of accomplishment and uncertainly about mili- tancy that many women feel. don't see the necessity for strident overtures to achieve 'what, in fact, has SPRING TEA and BAKE SALE WED., APRIL 15th 2-5 P.M.

"The thing that is going U> make women more acceptable is to become involved, to take the rfeponsibasty. I don't think they'll find the door as tightly closed against them as many seem to think." She says she can under- stand militancy, though. "If you go out to dinner, you'll find the women carry- ing the trays, doing the serv- ing, and a man supervising. Therese Casgrain of Moot- real is a long-term champion of v.Dtnen's rights and promi- nent CCF-NDP member. She says things have not improved much for women in Quebec in 25 years. "The only way for women to change their lot is to be- come educated, to be in- formed about everything, to stop acting as if they want to be masculine in order achieve equality, but to retain all their femininitT while showing they are B- formed and capable.
