Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHMIDGE HERALD Saturday, Octobtr 10, GT For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor gOME years back when women's rights were still literally in the diaper stage a woman said to me, "Yes but you already have equality in newspaper work. Everyone accepts you as being equal." I hope that woman is ready to eat her own words. Last week, a reporter was asked to leave the press box in Vancouver. She had a press pass and was prepared to cover the game between the Edmonton Eskimos and B.C. Lions. Canadian Press reported that she received VIP treatment instead of being mauled in the Lions' den. We can't imagine the reporter looking for VIP treatment, just acceptance for her job. She didn't get it. The press box is apparently under the close scru- tiny of Pat Slattery, the Vancouver Sun's men's fashion columnist. Mr. Slattery said his job is to protect the ears of "ladies" and "churchy guys" from the language of the working press. Unfortunately he was backed up to the hilt by Dennis Veitch general manager of the B.C. Lions. Jackie Parker, Lions' coach was reported to have said, "the lady" was welcome to come in after the game for a story with the fellas. One reporter (male) said he didn't mind "the lady" being there but it all depended on what she looked like. What condescending tripe! Why does the assumption that women need pro- tecting lead to complete prohibition? It's the kind of protection .that women neither need nor want. Women don't live behind lace curtains and Mr. Slattery should know better than to protect the ears of a newspaper reporter. They've heard it all. Mind you what else could you expect from a men's fashion writer? He doesn't live in the hurly- burly sports world either. The whole scene was a cop-out. Mr. Slattery and Co. made an issue where there was none, and needed to have been none and said reporter had no business accepting any seat but what she came for. If she had the necessary pass, reason to be there, she should have taken nothing less. If she really thought she was entitled the matter should merely have been a reporter kicked out of a press box. Would they have dared do the same without the excuse of a skirt? Business Women's Congress Has Men's Social Program EDMONTON (CP) Most men's conventions provide sep- arate social programs for ac- companying wives but the In- ternational Federation of Busi- ness and Professional Women plans to reverse the process during their congress next July in Edmonton. Ruth Bowen of Edmonton, press officer for the federa- tion's 12th Triennial Congress July 5-10, said today a pro- gram is being planned for any husbands or sons who accom- pany the women attending F.O.E.

The first husband has regis- tered. He is George Rey of Neepawa, Man., whose wife, the former Louise Card, is a past president of the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional women.

Speaking to the Women's Ca- nadian Club here, she criti- cized what she called discrimi- natory practices in pay, welfare legislation, hiring opportunities and pension and retirement plans. "It is still not recognized that when woman are refused oppor- tunities in employment and edu- cation, when they are treated less favorably than men in cir- cumstances which should have dictated the same conditions, that this too is she said. Miss Gelber said certain sec- THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "1 think I'll wait outside always get the feeling that florists, like furriers and jewelers are the natural enemies of man." tions of Canadian law do not allow for the fact that today several hundred thousand women are sole supporters of families. Workmen's compensation is administered b y provincial boards, some of which have the power to cut off benefits to a workman's widow if they think she is "leading an Immoral or improper He." PUBLIC CONCERNED "The question as to whether society should give to a board the power to make such moral judgments without even provid- ing an opportunity for appeal is a matter of deep concern to the present Miss Gel- ber said. In the employment field, qual- ified women graduates seeking employment still are frequently unable to get interviews with representatives o f indusfria firms. Few women hold senior academic jobs in universities. Under some pension plans, male employees of a firm are eligible to participate in the plan several years before women employees. In some, cases the retirement age for women is age 60 while that for men is 65, although sta- tistics show that women live longer on the average than men and are less vulnerable to such illnesses as heart disease and respiratory infection. "The fact that old age secu- rity pensions become available only at 65 adds to the hardship of women."
