Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 11, 1974 Secretary accuses Bay of sex discrimination WINNIPEG (CP) The Bay department store has been ac- cused of sexist discrimination by a secretary who says she was rudely ejected from a men's-only section of the store last week. Marilyn Bursten said she has written a letter to the store manager, the Consumer's Bureau and the Manitoba Human Rights Commission. A spokesman for the commission said the complaint will be investigated to determine whether it falls within the com- mission's jurisdiction. 'There's no gender discrimination in choosing students9 Dentistry attracting more women For (hit Unique Christmas Gift visit... Granum Gift Handicraft Centre Granum Phone 236-3828 NOW OPEN TORONTO (CP) In the way that society labels nurs- ing a female career, dentistry has traditionally been consid- ered a man's profession. But it is beginning to attract more and more and more women, and Adrianne Schmitt is one of them. "If you had told me 15 years ago that I would end up as a dentist, I would have the 29-year-old product from the Royal Col- lege of Dental Surgeons said. "Now I love it. You are your own boss; you work the hours you want and every day brings something new and dif- ferent." Adrianne was one of 12 women graduates last spring from University of Toronto, the largest group of women to graduate from the school's five-year dentistry course. Of the registered prac- titioners in Canada, 2M are women, an increase of 36 over last year. The Ontario Associ- ation of Women Dentists boasts 165 members. Dr. W. G. Mclntosh, execu- tive director of the Canadian Dental Association, said that within the last four years, the percentage of female dentists in Canada has risen from 2 to 3.5. "In a quiet, indirect way, we have been trying to en- courage more young women to consider dentistry as a ca- he said. "And we are seeing a slow but steady trend toward this end." Dr. Mclntosh said that asso- ciation spokesmen annually tour the country's high schools on recruiting drives, Ceramic work Terrariums Chenille work Terrarium plants Crochet Avon bottles Knitted Stamps Dried flower crafts Coins Dried flowers House plants Open Man., Tues., Wed., and Sat. from a.m. to p.m. Open Thurs., and Fri. from a.m. to p.m. CHARGEX THE GOLDEN MILE SINGERS 320 -11th St. S.

These drives have slowed down during the last two years, however, as Canada's 10 facilities of dentistry have been flooded with appli- cations. The association esti- mates there are eight eligible applicants for every vacancy. Dr. Mclntosh said there is no gender discrimination in selecting students, but said that a willingness to accept women as serious applicants has only 'come about in the last decade. "Ten years ago, many pro- fessional faculties, including dentistry, were suspicious of female he said. "They wondered if it was worth the expense to train a woman, then have her drop out of the work force in five or six years to get married and retire. "This no longer happens. Today, the woman who spends five years getting her degree almost always remains in the work force as long as a man does. I know of one woman dentist who has five children and still runs a busy prac- tice." Dr. NIcIntosh cited the new emphasis on childhood dental health as an attraction for when you buy the 31b.size of'country Parkay Margarine. (Or the 2 Ib. plus 1 Ib. size, or three 1 Ib. sizes.)
