Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Saluriiay, July 11, 1970 THE LE1HBRIDC-E HERALD 17 Women Need More Privileges Than Men in Russia Labor Director Sees World Changes In Equality OTTAWA (CP) Sylva Gelber, director of the women's bureau for the fed- eral labor department, is all for- seeing that men and women share equal opportu- nity in the vyork world. As Canadian representative on the United Nations com- mission on the status of women, she's seeing the trends in other countries- some she finds surprising. She was "flabbergasted" re- cently by a stand taken by Communist countries at a meeting in Geneva of the 32- member commission. "The U.S.S.R. boasts that about 80 per cent of its doc- tors are women and about 50 per cent of its engineers are women and frankly, in my na- ivete, I assumed that the status of women in Russia is relatively she said. But one member of the Communist bloc had proposed a resolution asking for special privileges In labor legislation for women and criticizing Ui Intei-national Labor Organiza tion for failing to provide sue standards. She asked if this mean labor regulations for working should be raised to the level of those for men. Communist delegates re- plied that women should have privileges beyond (hose of as better retire- ment benefits. DIDN'T GET ANSWER "In trying to understam this, I said: "Look, if you wan equality, what is the basis for asking more for women than for "f never got a specific an- swer but I started asking a lot of questions behind the scenes. "My impression is thai while in Russia women have been encouraged to get an ed- ucation and to enter profes- sional activities equal to or exceeding those of men, that JULY VOWS-Mr. ond Mrs. Briant W.

"So the Russian working woman has twice the load of the working woman in our so- ciety. "A lot of our people wlio think that revolution brings social emancipation should not be misled by the large numbers of women in some professions in some countries. "They've also got to look at prevailing attitudes before they can judge the status ot women in them." Miss Gelber says she is not criticizing Russia because Ca- nadians aren't in a position to criticize others. CHARTER FOR MOTHERS During its meeting the UN commission came up with two main resolutions which must be referred for approval to the United Nations Economic and Social Council for ap- proval. Although she is not anxious to talk about them in detail until they are accepted for fear some changes may be made, Miss Gelber said one deals with a long-term pro- gram for women's advance- ment. The otlrer is what she calls the "charter of the unmarried mother." It was introduced by Norway ond seconded by Can- ada. "It recommends that an un- married mother have tho same legal rights with respect to her child as a married Miss Gelber said. "Unmarried mothers with children in some countries are often subject to legal and so- cial discrimination although they assume a heavy respon- sibility." Sealed in her 12th-floor Ot- tawa with paint- ings and sprinkled with books on human rights, Miss Gelber turned to the working woman in Canada. "Quite obviously we're far beyond the stage where it should be discussed whether it is right or wrong for a woman to work outside the she said. "This now is a fact.. But so- ciety has yet to wor'k out pro- per provision for the care of pre-school children and work- ing mothers." The bureau has recently completed but not released a study on working mothers and child care in Canada, based on figures from the Dominion Bureau of Statistics in connec- tion with a labor-force survey in April, 1967. It shows that at that time in Canada there were more than children under 14 whose mothers worked. Of these, 35 per cent were undef 6. Miss Gelber says that since then the figure has increased because of the trend in the last few years for more and more married women to enter the labor force. She also says she would like to "gear a lot of data to the young girls before they're brainwashed." She says girls are being de- terred "by the myth that be- cause they're developing their minds, they're less feminine." "Parents and vocational counsellors aren't helping them. Vocational counsellors are telling them not to go ahead because they won't get jobs. Parents are afraid they won't get married and the kids are scared. "Margaret Mead, a noted U.S. anthropologist, has said that women today are afraid to succeed lest they be thought less feminine. Men today are afraid to fail lest they be considered less mas- culine. "I think both ore true. We've got to change this and I think advertisers bear a ter- rific responsibility for these perverted attitudes. "If an anthropologist in the next century opened some of today's fashion magazines, he would say that in 1970 a woman over" 30 didn't exist. Or one with grey hair. W o m e n 's activities would consist of going to the hair- dresser or looking beautiful at the races. Ann Landers Forthcoming Marriages and Mrs. F. Brassard of Mos-1 Mr. and Mrs. Claude S.

So how come you didn't check with somebody be- fore you gave that nothing answer to "Call Me He was the 19-year-old boy who is miserable because people frequently mistake him for a girl on the phone. The fact that you, Ann Landers, are mistaken for j. guy didn't help him much. You should have sent him first to a laryngologist to learn if he lias an abnormality. This can sometimes cause a high-pitched voice. If no abnormality is present, he might get help from a speech therapist. Please suggest to anyone who has a speech disorder, In- cluding voice difficulties, to write to the American Speech and Hearing Association, 9030 Old Goergetown Road, Wash- ington, D.C. 20014. This organization can let people know what help is available to (hem in their own community. Hagers- town, Md. DEAR HAGERS: You are right. My answer was Inade- quate. Thank you for providing me with a tetter one. DEAR ANN LANDERS: II you tell me to M.Y.O.B., I will take your advice, but I do so want to help this young woman. Lizette came to work here six months ago. She has a fine figure, beautiful hair, excellent taste in clothes and a lovely face until she opens her mouth. The girl has several teeth missing and is in dire need of dental care. Bad teeth can make a person look years older. Why doesn't she see this and do something about it? Money is not a problem, I'm sure. She drives a new car and her clothes are the best. Whenever I look at this girl I feel guilty for not having the nerve to speak out. Should I, Ann? If so how? and Hating Myself DEAR TIM: A person who walks around with teeth missing and a moulh that needs restoration does so for one of two reasons. (1) Money problems. (2) A pathological fear of dental work. I suspect Liiette falls into the latter category. Tell her you have a wonderful dentist who is up on the latest anesthetics and that you will try to get an appoint- ment for her if she wishes. The poor girl probably remembers dental agony as it was 20 years ago. She doesn't realize that times have changed. Tell her. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This will probably as t shock to you, but I am in love with my husband. Don't ask me why. He snores, looks at too much TV, rubbernecks when a cute dish struts by in a mini-skirt, forgets to throw his shorls and sox in the hamper and he leaves wet towels on the bathroom floor. I could go on and aren't these things that make a man a rran? My husband has provided me with everything a woman could ask love. I sometimes wonder if I have as much for him. Please print my letter, Ann. It might be a welcome relief from the daily recital of wifely complaints. Sign me No Newlywed DEAR N.N.: Here's your letter and my thanks for writing it. It is indeed a welcome' relief. I don't agree, however, that the faults you listed "make a man a man." EXPLAIN THAT!
