Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 FEMINIST PUBLISHERS LIZ MARTIN, LEFT, AND SANDRA FOSTER Traditional publishers 'don't give a damn about women writers' TORONTO (CP) Tradi- tional Canadian publishing houses "don't give a damn about women writers" says a co-founder of Canadian Women's Educational Press. Sandra Foster, who with a group of about 18 other women formed the collective, non- profit publishing house two years ago, said in an in- terview that other publishers regard her group as a "spe- cial issue and one that has sur- vived the fad of women's liberation."

Besides publishing books about the women's movement by Canadian women writers, the collective is in the second and third printings of four non-sexist children's publica- tions. Since its first book, Women Unite! was produced in 1972, the group has turned out booklets on day-care; a bib- liography of the writing of Ca- nadian women and most recently a collection of inter- views with Cuban women en- titled Cuban Women Now, by Margaret Randall. "We felt that by publishing this look at Cuban women, Canadians would see the in- timate interrelationship of so- cial and political said Ms. Foster.

Another staff member Liz Martin said the press work is handled by a commercial company but the typesetting, layout and design are done by the group. They operate from the third floor of a large house in down- town Toronto. To keep costs down, they have organized their own distribution lists and do their own packing, shipping and selling. Distribution is difficult, said Ms. Foster, "because many established book dealers don't give us the promotion we need and fail to take us seriously." Getting books such as Never Done, a history of the struggles of the Canadian pio- neer women, into schools has been a matter of luck. LIBRARIANS HELP "If we have sympathetic women librarians and teach- ers on our side, such educa- tional textbooks can do much to teach both male and fe- male students about this side of she said. The group has relied mainly on government grants to keep the operation going but the members said they would pre- fer to be self-sufficient. "Publishing in Canada is in itself a very risky said Ms. Foster. "When we started out, we knew we couldn't turn a profit, in fact we didn't want to. "Using the resources of other small publishing houses and printers who empathized with us, we learned a lot about how to run the business." Just off the presses is the group's most ambitious proj- ect, a collection of essays en- titled Women at tario 1850 to 1930.

SOENEN 'Going it liking it' More women maintaining own residences PHILADELPHIA (AP) Going it liking the norm for the modern unattached woman, says the head of a national real estate financing and servicing organization. "Today about 9.3 million single, divorced and widowed women live alone, maintain- ing their own residences apart from their relatives." said Marshall C. Dennison, presi- dent of Associated Mortgage Companies, Inc. Add to this number about seven million women who head families and you have the makings of un- precedented demand for hous- ing geared to suit the female on her own." Dennison noted that at mid- century only 3.7 million single women were residing in their own apartments and homes and just three million divorc- ed and widowed women were out tackling familiar respon- sibilities. As for the predilection of the liberated female, it's metropolitan living that catches her fancy. "Seven of every 10 single women dwell in the major cities or their immediate sub- Dennison said. "The reasons: greater job opportunities, chance to par- ticipate in the diverse life of a metro-centre and, conceivably a better selection of single men." Where do these women like to live? "Look Dennison suggested. "Female renters are a staple of the high-rise, in-town apartment market. In recent years, they have become im- portant participants in the condominium-purchase scene as well." He said the movement of women into metro-environs has sparked the current boom in all-amenity buildings. "Much of the emphasis on large lobbies, secretarial service, swimming pools, recreational rooms and even rooftop gardens stems from the emergence of women in the rental field." Dennison observed that younger under- 30 a downtown dwelling, especially a high- rise which offers an oppor- tunity to socialize within the building. Martin Bros.
