OTTAWA (CP) Free, community controlled child care .centres open 24 hours a day for children of all ages is advocated in a policy state- ment issued by the federal council of the New Democratic Party. The statement, decrying slow and inadequate action on women's rights by both federal -and provincial governments, says NDP provincial governments should take the lead in raising the social and economic status of women. Laws prohibiting sex 'dis- crimination and providing equal pay for equal work should be rigorously enforced, the statement says. Maternity leave should be granted for whatever time a woman and her doctor deem necessary, with a guaranteed right to return to work with no penalty in seniority or salary. Labor laws should provide collective bargaining rights for women in -domestic and part-time work, and all women, including those who work at home, should have pension rights equal to men, the NDP says. The policy statement said women are poor, many of them working a lifetime in the home for no pay and no pen- sion in their old age. The majority of people liv- ing on welfare are women, and in employment outside the home they are the worst- paid, in the most menial and boring jobs, it said. The school system en- couraged discrimination against women seeking careers in academic, and sciences. The policy state- ment said sex stereotyping should be eliminated from all text books. Pointing towards fitness Duncan Rand and Mary Kay Miller, shown above with YMCA adult program director Pat O'Brien, left, were two of approximately 40 people plotting exercise schedules this week, to launch the Y's fitness month, ending Feb. 14.

Mr. O'Brien says the average person would have to work for eight points daily, five days a week to accumulate the recommend- ed 160 points in a month.

The Richmond, Va., I firm termed its action a "market withdrawal" not a recall because it ;H was undertaken volun- tarily, without Food and Drug Administration g (FDA) pressure. '__ Robins said it has dis- patched salesmen to pick up an unknown number of unused Dal kon Shields from wholesalers, physi- cians, hospitals and family planning organizations and give refunds.

The Dalkon Shield has been used by an es- timated 2.2 million women in the United States and another 000 in other countries. Women teachers concerned with people's status VANCOUVER (CP) A group of women school teachers presented a brief to the Vancouver School Board this week, calling it "our first steps to eradicate sexism from the school system." Board chairman Dr. Katharine Mirhady welcomed the group as a suitable delegation to start out the inter- national year of women. Al Patterson, president of the Vancouver Elemen- tary School Teachers Association, said the delegation headed by Nora Groves and Maureen Pollard, was more concerned with the status of people. The brief was critical of the board for not hiring women for administrative positions. There are only six women principals in the city and four of them are in elementary schools. Among the recommendations in the brief: program of co-educational sex education from kindergarten up; more equitable male-female teacher ratio in secondary elementary schools; and training to equip women for top positions. of women to administrative posts in preference to men until balance is reached. the board make use of the title Ms. extensive use of part-time teachers. women's studies course for Grades 11 and 12. of all clubs, programs and activities to all students regardless of sex. of all physical education classes. of playgrounds.
