It’s a tough battle. Recent laws have given Brazilian women equal rights — on paper «- with men. But most Brazilian men still think a woman should stay home and have babies. The seiuua shows that while women make up nearW SI per cent of BrazU’s popuutioD of 100 milti«, they constitute just 17 per cent of the work force. There are no militant women’s rights groups in Brazil. Yet it is impossible now for a determined Brazilian womaD to compete on an equal basis with men. Here are three examples: In Fortaleza, capital of the nortbeastem Brazilian state of Ceara, you might eiq>ect to encounter a collection of tough, typically hot-blooded ‘'macho” Latins in the police force. And you do, except at the eight precinct. There the c^ef is a demure, 28-year-old blonde named Margarida Maria Borges de Carvalho. The first woman precinct chief in Ceara*s history, Miss Carvalho is the boss of 31 policemen and detectives — all males. FOUND NO BIAS “I competed for this job against 53 men,” she said. "I found no discrimination based on sex. "It’s difficult to be the first anythiog. But government officials, the press and the j pie here in general have I behind me all the way.” Miss Carvalho graduated from Ceara Federal University’s law school and then enrolled in the state police school. She was a top swdent and wound up as state pistol ^**^nkThave the same chance for advancement on the police force as a man,” !die said. "And in this depart^ ment there is no salary discrimination between men and women.” Jenny Sauer Dias, 55, is market research and industrial relations director of Sauer S.A., one of South America’s largest gear fac> tories. Her father, a German immigrant who died four years ago, willed the factory to his seven children—five sons and two daughters. The brothers assumed they would run the operation and give the women honorary positions on the board of directors. STUDIED MARKETING “I was determined to take an active role,” Mrs. Dias said. "I told myself I wasn’t going to be relegated to the back seat because I was a wnnan.” She took an intensive university - level course in marketing and then strode boldly into the gear factory to take up her position. “The idea of woman taking charge offended my brothers male vanity,” she said. "When I started work, none of them would teach m« the ropes. So I learned the hard way — by myself.” Mrs. Diis woD tbe respect and authority that «0 with her present potlOon inch by Incb. Her huaband, a pbyiidan, and six cbUdren, reallxe she Deeds a lot freedom, she said. Marla Stella Lopes Rodrigues, 41, is one of 175 -judfes in tbe BrazilUn state of Guanabara, whldi eneom* pases the city of Rio. Only four of her colleagues on tbe bench are wonun. FOUND NO PROBLEMS "Many well-meaning people tried to discourage me from this career,’’ she said. “But I’ve been a judfe since IMO, and there haven’t been way problems.” Mrs. Rodrigues, a law school graduate and author of a standard two - volume legal textbook used at universities throu{^iout Brazil, was the first woman ever to serve on the Guanabara juvenile court ~ a position she held for ei^t years before moving to me state civil court. As a juvenile court officer, she once broke up a rebellioo at a tough Rio reform school, to the amazement of male wardens and guards who thought the situation was out of control “I went in aJone and quietly talked to the boys about their complaints,” she said. "I was just doing my job.” When the finished hi| school, Mrs. Rpdrigues her fitfaer gave her a ring to symboIlK the end of her education. Tlwre was a family battle when she decided to on to college and i^duai school. She met her nusband when he was a juvenile court c«nmiBsi«ier, «e of her sub-onUnates. ' “I’m useless in the kitchen," she grinned. “The wily thin» I can make are salads and geUttine. "Now my husband, he loves to cook.” JAILED FOR SMUGGLING WARSAW (Reuter) -Several members of PoUuod’s national bridge team have received jail sentences ranging from two to eight yeans for smuggling gold and hard currencjr during their travels to foreign bridge tournaments, the Pobsh newspaper Express Wieczomy reports. Earlier reports said the bridge players smuggled out of Poland currency equivalent to $130,000 and returned with pounds of gold. Family food bill still on increase The arrival of cold weather in Lethbridge has done nothing to help put the freeze on nsmg food costs. Consumers stalking the grocery shelves for savii are being out manoeuvered penny - here - penny there increases which have resulted m a food bill 8.3 per cent and $5 06 higher than that in June— a short six months ago. A Herald survey of 54 items in Lethbridge uncovered price increases in 30. Most notable among the changes were meat prices with brown and serve pork chops selling 56 cents higher than in June; economy hamburger priced at $1.00 rather than 89 cents ready to eat ham going up 20 cents and beef liver going from 79 to 95 cents per pound. Leg of pork roast climbed frcni II15 per pound to fl.69, while chuck steak took a 20 cent dip from the June price. Canned goods on the whole remained level, or showed minor increases and decreases Fresh fruit on the other hand experienced a 20-cent decrease per pound for apples, ana 20-cent increase per pound of oranges. Remaining static on the list were numerous sundry items including cereals, dish, laundry and hand soap; shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, and facial tissue. Dramatic price increases showed up on sugar and cooking oil prices, with increases frtjm $1.69 to |2,15 per 10-pound bag, and 81 cents to $1.05 for a bottle of oil. Vegetanans might find the grocery bill relatively smaller than in the summer, with price reductions on carrots, lettuce and celery. A three-pound bag of carrots tallied at 63 cents, now down to 55; lettuce was 49 cents, slipping to 23 and celery went down two cents from the June price of 25 cents per pound. Food store manager, Bob Kemp explained the summer increases as "probably being the result of strikes and poor weather conditions in the growing areas.” Decreases were attributed to alleviated conditions BINGO SCANDtNAVtAN HALL • 229 IZtti St. C N.
