Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBfllDGE May Girls require special attention Need stressed for women counsellors CALGARY (CP) School guidance counsellors are turning'potential doctors into angry nurses, says a Counsellor Education Professor from the University of Toronto. "I would like to see counsellors turn girls on to their potential rather than assistant professor Philip Manuel said in an interview. "But I rather suspect that girls are being turned off by counsellors both male and female." Mr. Manuel, one of two men on the 17-member Ontario Status of Women Council, was here to address the Canadian Guidance and Counselling Association Western Regional Conference. While the aim of counselling has always been to develop the student's potential, special attention must now be given to girls, he said. "We've got a catchup job to do. There's a cultural lag. "Men expect to work for 25 or 30 years. But 80 per cent of all females in Grade 11 will probably work 25 years of their life. For many of them that 25 years will be interrupted by a child-bearing period of 10 years. "I think we've got to calk to girls about that." He said girls should be encouraged, as boys are. to develop life skills rather than just to consider the immediate future. "A girl will say, 'All I want to do is become a secretary and get married.' But we have to say. 'Well that's fine but have you thought about what you're going to do when your kids go to school, your marriage breaks up or your husband Mr. Manuel, who trains 200 guidance counsellors each year, stressed the need for more women counsellors.

"Counsellors, particularly males, are still pushing the big three teacher, nurse and secretary." He urged counsellors to make young women aware of their rights under equal opportunity legislation and to invite female doctors, lawyers and plumbers to talk to mixed classes about their jobs. Mr. Manuel also is involved in developing non-sexist guidelines for the monitoring of new school text books in Ontario this fall. "Take any textbook in Grades 1 to 3 and it's littered with sexual bias.' Women are shown to be passive while men are active. "For example, when John- ny's bike breaks down, John- ny and his father fix it while Susie and her mother watch." He said sex stereotyping won't start to disappear from textbooks for at least three years since that's the length of time a textbook must be used in order to pay for itself.
