Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETH8RIDGE HEKALD Sotuiday, Morth II, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herold Family Editor JT MUST MAKE WOMEN7 shudder and men laugh to read about the antics of the proponents ot feminist movements. Like any protest group they create a disturbance, get their 'publicity and accom- plish nothing except antagonism on The assault (for it was nothing else) on the offices of the Ladies Home Journal this week, by a group of 10 feminists was childish and ridiculous. The women were not members of the staff. They singled out the magazine since it has readers. How they got up five floors to magazine editor John Mack Carter's office can't be understood hut when they arrived they sat themselves down in his office to demand a woman replace him. It's enough to make any copy boy weep. If the magazine has women employees who are not being utilized in writing capacities as was the charge with jN'ewsweek magazine, fine. If women have applied for work and not been hired although they have credentials, fine. If there is a woman on the staff who was qual- ified to be editor and been prevented from doing so on the basis of sex, fine, then let the women beef. But to be completely removed from the policies without any personal involvement is to ask for nothing mo're than a figurehead. The walk-in was a grandstand play which will get little support from the bleachers where people are out "doing" and making changes which will help specific groups of women who need it, not a group of self-important harridans. One of the women who is "doing" is Mrs. Grace Maclnnis Mrs. Macln- nis has just sponsored a bill in the House of Com- mons which would give any woman who has been engaged in domestic work for more than three years in her home government retraining assistance. This bill would enable women who have given up their work to marry and raise children, and find themselves widowed without means of support, or deserted to stay off of the welfare roles. We can't all be a member of parliament but anyone who wants to can make changes around them if he or she wishes. Those women who marry and wish to raise children and stay financially dependent upon their husbands should not be looked down upon if they wish nothing different, Women who work in the home often regard those women who work as pushy and dissatisfied. There are a great many prob- lems to be solved in the woman's working world that may not be understood until you're in it. But since those proulcms involve people who are conditioned in their way of thinking, they have to be reconditroned, and that takes time. These women who call themselves feminists do not want equality they want the reins, and God help us all if they ever get them. Why are they given publicity it is often asked? Not to make news, but because anything that happens is news. You can't pretend that an incident has not oc- curred by ignoring it, even the tragic ones, and it isn't a newspaper's prerogative to decide what the public should be told and what it shouldn't. Mr. Carter has agreed to an eight-page supple- meiit for the feminists which should be interesting. We doubt though that with a readership of over six million, Mr, Carter feels his magazine is not appeal- ing to someone.
