Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 UTIIBRIDCE HERAID Monday, Junn 8, 1970 One Sentence Lasts MONTREAL (CP) Jeanne Wan en. newly ap- pointed judge of Quebec's pro- vincial social welfare court, says rendering a decision on a child is extremely important because it affects not only his life but the lives of everyone surrounding him. "After all." said the petite blonde of 48. "such a judg- ment can affect a child's whole life, and a child is never an isolated unit, so his parents and family aie af- fected as well. "I realize these judgments must consider the points of view of child, parents and so- ciety." Mrs. Warren said she has "great faith" in parents, al- though "there are no easy an- swers to problems currently affecting family structures and I am suspicious of those who say they do." Her appointment became effective in an easy time to be appointed to the social welfare court, since all traditions and institutions are being challenged." But she feels "important changes in administration of justice will develop." SEES HOLES IN LAW Her experience as a mem- ber of a Quebec commission on health convinced her that "while we are not backward in social welfare, there are holes in our legislation due to tte fact that legislation has been voted piece by piece." Mrs. Warren, a mother of one, has been a force in JUDGE WARREN 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX Quebec social welfare since I94d when she became the first woman to be admitted to the Quebec bar. After studying criminology and "a few courses in sociol- ogy" at the London School of Economics, she joined the j Quebec civil service in 1918 to j head a department of Youth Prelection Schools. Her career was interruuted in 1953 when she mot and i married architect Walter Warren. "I had to resign iny position because I was getting mar- ried, and that was 17 years ago. You see how things have changed." Marriage meant moving to Montreal, but Mrs. Warren says she could have continued her work "if it hadn't been for that ridiculous rule about married women, which has been changed, thank good- ness." She filled in time with vol- unteer work and lecturing on welfare legislation before en- tering private practice. It was 1962 when she returned to public life as an election can- didate for the Union Nation- ale. She was defeated. "My father took me to polit- ical meetings and had many lawyers among his friends. I think I came to believe that the law was one entry into public life." SHE'S NO FEMINIST Mrs. Warren does not like being described as a feminist. "Even in my youth I never would have joined the W c m e n 's Liberation Move- As far as I am con- cenKjd, women have then1 freedom but it is up to them to work hard to take advan- tage of it. "I can't see myself march- ing in the streets. I consider that passe." Asked if she would prefer to be minister of a government department rather than a judge, she replied: "It wasn't until last year that I'developed enough cour- age to mention my age. I re- alized how stupid I was being and thst attitude was part of the feminine folklore that I dislike. "Now that I have told you I am 48, I will explain that I tlu'nk that 48 is tively, at the bench but is it that young for poli- tics? Political life is so de- manding. "Perhaps if I had been 10 years younger I would have tried politics again as a means of achieving my goals in social welfare. I am not sure. But I do believe there is a great contribution to be made on the bench. "On the bench, I will come face to face with reality."
