WINNIPEG fCP) Equality between the sexes will come about only when men stop fear- ing the feminine and acknowl- edge that both sexes share simi- lar characteristics. That's the opinion of Penelope Washbourn of Wooster College in Ohio who said: "We have i split the human personality into two separate entities, labelling j one masculine and the other I feminine, attributing certain characteristics to each." She said the feminine Is the rational, that which cannot be controlled, a category into which both death and emotions also fall. "Our Western society fears both these because we are un- able lo control them. And so we suppress them." a move that icd to Ihe suppression of the female. "You see this in the lack of women as leaders in religious life." Prof. Washbourn said i civilization must chance its atti- tude towards the sexes in order to develop a more realistic con-1 ception of religion, a step that is j necessary for equality. She said if religion is to be of j any significance, the church must start accepting women as! a full part of the religious life and must also accept the femi-; ninitv of God. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
