Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Monday, February 18, 1974 Council chairman states.. Women must have power Getting women involved Laura Sabia says women need to get into positions of top-level decision making. By JEAN SHARP TORONTO (CP) If things are going to change, women are going to have to get serious about getting power, says Laura Sabia. "Women must get into politics. "We have to get women in places of decision making." Mrs Sabia has become gadfly extraordinary on behalf of the women of Canada, whether they like it or not. Her latest base for attack is as chairman of Ontario's status cf women council, appointed in the fall. Mrs. Sabia has a long list of involvements with volunteer groups on St. Catharines in her background. She has been a school trustee, an alderman, a defeated candidate for mayor and for member of Parliament. She ran a lively hot-line show for several years. She rocketed onto the national scene in 1965, gathering up women's groups in the gogo-go whirl of tall; and bustle that has become her trade mark. USED AS BASE She was president of the Canadian Federation of Uni- versity Women then and used that as a base to draw women's groups together for a push that resulted in the establishment of the royal commission on the status of women "I accepted the university women's presidency because I thought that's a way I can get to women "I had no sooner taken it on than I realized they weren't going to support me. But at least I had the office. Women have to wield power if they're going to get anywhere. "In my own federation, a few applauded, but some didn't. I was unladylike. People wrote to say they were going to turn in their membership cards "But we got the job done. The national women's groups got the commission because they all pulled together. Gov- ernments love it when you stay separate." This need for women to get to where it matters is a con- stant theme in her conversation nowadays and in her work with her 17-member council. "I've done all the voluntary work you could think of, the Y, university women, home and school. "Voluntary work is often an exercise in futility. I ve been on 15 deputations to government of ons kind and another, and I can't point my finger at very much that has changed. "I'd done all this while raising our four children. So I though, well, I'm not going to do any more." QUIT SCHOOL BOARD She was elected to the separate school board and quit because after a few years she developed a conviction that there should not be two school systems. She served seven years as an alderman "I always led the polls. But when I ran for mayor, women said, don't you think being mayor is a man's job9 Or my husband says. "I was defeated." She ran as a Conservative in the 1968 federal election "Then I decided that, at my age, I had done politics." Mrs. Sabia is 57. Since the day of her appointment to the chairmanship of the status council, Mrs Sabia has said she will quit if it is ineffective. "I've been appointed for two years. If it's effective, and I'm asked, I'll stay on. "I'm in the fortunate position of not having to give a damn. I don't have to work. "If we can move governments and the private sector, we'll be successful. We now have one woman deputy min- ister. There now are three women on the economic coun- cil out of 24. That's an improvement, but we need 10. 'FED UP' "I'm fed up with people like W. E. McLaughlin of the Royal Bank who tell me it takes 10 to 15 years to develop a woman before she can be appointed to the board of directors.
