Sponsoring the seminar were the Alberta Native Wo- men's Association, Calgary Lo- cal Council of Women, National Council of Jewish Women, Cal- gary Junior League of Calgary and Women of Uni- farm. A corps of women was form- ed at the conclusion of the three-day seminar to act as a co-ordinating body to provide information and to maintain contact with participants. YMCA news London stveepstakes winner swamped idtli phone calls iv A personal view It's time to act By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor MAJOR MESSAGE coming through lo me during the seminar was that women do not have to be embar- rassed about talking about themselves. It may seem ofttirr.es that we do this constantly anyway at a very personal level, but dismissed as unimportant since it is largely meaningless and unconstruclive as to change, We are aware of our own problems but fail lo link them with others with the view in mind that problems can be solved. We know there are issues of concern to women but until they touch us personally w-e are unable to identify with them. Women in general are not functional on a wide enough scale to take positive and co-ordinated steps to make the necessary changes. Perhaps now we can. The report of the Status of Women in Canada has been discussed and enlarged upon and pcsi- tive recommendations have been made. It Ls now up to the women of Canada to become informed about the circum- stances which exist in Canada, and Alberta is leading the way. Over 100 women became involved '.his weekend in Cal- gary. Others can. too. Involvement can take the form of personal participation in the affairs of the country at any of tlie three levels of government: positive action in letter- writing and committee work to change the laws of the country which discriminate against the freedom of choice and opportunity of the individual, any individual, male or female; or concentration on changing the climate of one's own environment by examining personal needs and obli- gations. The first step in involvement with an issue is not easy for a majority of women. Boredom, frustration and dis- content lead many women into action, and family obliga- tions and self-deprecation keep many women out of it. Even so, women tend to find "safe'' harbors the church, the school, the Hospital, charities in which to channel their creative and humanistic drives. North American women are, and have been controlled, dominated, and instructed in a male-oriented society. Men BINGO RAINBOW HALL 5th Ave. N.

When this respect is not present, each loses. The school and the hospital are interest areas which meet the approval of male society but worthy as they might be. they do not meet the needs of many women. Today, women ask what else there is. The stereotype role is only one of many options open to women, A choice is in sight. -A- Men ask. if women are so interested in active participa- tion, where arc they? It's a legitimate question and one of real concera. We hear the excuses of family duties, child-bearing, bow- ing to egocentric maic domination husband won't let They are excuses because they have not stopped women who care enough. One problem is a fear of aggressiveness. Women do not want to be lalwllcd as aggressive for fear of collecting another labs] "masculine." Competition and aggressiveness are innate qualities in both sexes as are timidity and petti- ness, which we tend to associate with the female. The other is that women are accepting of life. They ac- cept the social and financial status of the man they marry, or Ihe obligations of family, and thereafter compromise what they want from life, with what Uiey know they can expect. At the cost of their own personal ambitions and goals, their protective instinct, when present, prohibits them from hurting those they love; they suppress what "could bo" for what "is." Now. then, in Alberta, women have taken the first steps to positive action. They are reading, learning, distressing this report about themselves, other women, and men. They arc assessing it with the intent of understanding their fellow Canadian, and trying to help him or her. What must be guarded against is women telling women what they should think and do. The report is an obligation, but it must be a self-imposed one. Local workshops can provide the opportunity for women to learn about themselves, encourage them to develop new strengths and turn innate abilities into constructive and positive action. The country needs its women. It needs even- able and capable person, and many able and capable persons are locking (or support. Organizational structures are not necessary except to co- ordinate activities of a general area. A collection of reading materials for interested women, a list of speakers and re- source people, male and female, and an organizer is all that is necessary. One speaker and one group is a start. But there is little input from the group that way, and a three-day seminar or workshop, can open the way to a real learning situation. Now is the time to become aware, involved and con- cerned. Not as a militant body of angry women exhausting themselves and wasting energies in compaints and bitchi- ncss, but as a cohesive group upgrading their knowledge about the way fte laws of Canada treat women, and treat men. The report is concerned with equality human equality for men and women. Obstacles to human equality come from fear; fear stems from lack of understanding, and understanding another is not possible until one understands oneself.
