A call is out from The Women's Move-mom for Politi- cal Action for Ihe ideas and participnlion of womc-n in all parts of the country. The. WMPA is (he result of a mauling of a group of women wild gol loRcUicr as a resull of a general feeling lhat nothing much i.s going to hap- pen lo improve u'orm'n's lot unless women do il. Kay Macpherson, long-lime activist in Ihe Voice of Women, says it a group of individuals whose collective viewpoint, is not. exclusively feminist, though there were some [eminisls among them. "There have been nuitlcr- ings among people ever since Ihe beginning of Ihe status of about much i.s going lo happen un- less women did something. "We finally decided might a.s well get a group lo- gelhcr." They have lalkecl lo polili- eians aljout practical aspects such as the availability of scats lo run for and haiu de- cided parly plans are set and the prospecl, of any of Ihem running a new woman candi- date is unlikely. NOT ANTI-HALE 'We are independently ap- pealing lo women lo push our way into the men's world, bill not strictly from a feminist point of view. "We have to try t o get much more concern on the part of women that they are half the population nnd they are pul down, and it's high lime a liUle more action was taken. "We may try running a Irinl woman, even across parlies, to find out if women will lend support In a camlidali'. lo get more women in the House of Commons." She says Ihey aren't Inter- ested in an anti-men cam- paign. women won't ac- cept an anti-male platform. we don't want lo support just any woman if she sup- ports lire current male-ori- ented setup. She must have a base of concern for women's rights and for such areas as the stalus of women, day- care centres, clc. "Nor do we want lo restrict any of il lo 'women's affairs.1 There are women well able to contribute lo all areas of pub- lic lilc. feel women haven't taken enough responsibility. Whal we have lo do, T Iliink. al the moment is see what soil of response we get and inaylie have another mcc-iing or have comcane say, OK. I'll ho Ihe guinea pig for this one. "The next federal election is I he sort of deadline. We inay possibly be running candi- dates without hope of winning, .jusl lo sec whal sort of sup- port Ihey get." Mrs. Macpherson says she is one woman giving some thought lo Ihe possibility of running, as are others who were at the meeting She says the group has no answers yet to queslions of fi- nancing campaigns. "The idea could fall flat on. its face, jusl on that account.'' We certainly couldn't hire air- planes, which is Ihe sort of thing that's done now. But afler all, the whole thing comes down lo a campaign in one constituency. "If people think it is worth doing, maybe we'll look lor money." unii BINGO MOUbt HALL "34 3td NORTH WEDNESDAY a.
