Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor A RE - OCCURRING question from many women this week has been "how do we undertake a study of the status of women in Canada report." And rightly they should ask, because judging by the turnouts at the several meetings I've attended in the past year, a new approach is needed. I Apathy has been cited as a reason for poor turnouts to first of all acquaint women with the report. I'd like to think intelligence was there, too, since anyone in his or her right mind knows that you cannot take a two-inch thick book to study and even make a dint in it in one night. Telling women at these kinds of meetings what is in the report becomes a skimmer session, and since many of the areas of involvement in the report are so unfamiliar to so many of the women, the telling becomes unsatisfactory for both the speaker and audience. The only group who has made a co-ordinated effort throughout the province to familiarize women with the report has been the Women of Unifarm, who is sponsoring a total of 28 information meetings. These meetings began Oct. 19 and will continue until next Thursday. At the meeting, copies of the recommendations (in brief) are distributed free of charge. This, in itself, is probably the most beneficial part of the whole program since it gives women (if they will) an opportunity to read and digest at least some of it. Once copies of the report become more widely available and read, the situation will be helped greatly. And perhaps a little pressure on the Queen's Printer in Ottawa wouldn't hurt. Having sat in on a number of these meetings by various groups, two points need special emphasis. One is that if too many of these meetings are held without any satisfactory follow-up, the repetitious nature of them will turn off even the most interested followers. The report is just too big a project to tackle all at once. It needs breaking down to the size of one's human endurance and ability to assimilate in one evening, or one series of evenings. The report has been categorized into several areas of education, employment, economy, etc. It would be easy to examine each topic individually. Which leads me to the second point. It seems that the questioning at meetings comes because one person is interested in one topic, e.g. citizenship, credit, education. Why not avoid study groups per organization and have study groups per area of interest? Plan a meeting not to study the report (status is after all a rather nebulous term) but to study for example women in the labor force. Then when you have a group which is especially interested in this area, let them go at it, complete with local implications. This is especially important. The report includes all of Canada, and many regulations which apply in one province do not apply to another. I've heard lecturers declare a provincial regulation as discriminatory, and express need for its change, but fail to mention that there is no need to get all steamed up about it in Alberta since it doesn't apply here, and the recommended change is in effect. The report also becomes more meaningful when you can see its application. That's why your children go on field trips in school, to see in action what they learn in print. If a recommendation doesn't apply here let someone else in Canada worry about it, once you know about it and can rest assured it's in action. One important recommendation to the native worn-, en of Canada concerned their loss of treaty rights when they married a non-native. This has now been changed (the announcement was made this week) after a hard-fought case elsewhere in Canada. I heard this recommendation explained to non-native women as being necessary so that when the white man ditched his Indian wife, she could go back to the reserve and have her land and small amount of money. It sounded quite different when I heard a treaty woman speak in favor of the recommendation. She didn't expect to be ditched. She just wanted to feel like an Indian, and to her losing her treaty rights took away her heritage. It was that simple. A status seminar in Calgary supported this recommendation with a telegram to Ottawa. How much effect it had will probably never be known, but it was action, and the voices of 110 women were heard. ? * * Once the stone is thrown and the ripples begin to spread it could be an interesting year for women. They 11 likely learn a lot about themselves, and find they're not so hard to like after all. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

GOLDEN GLITTER - The annual police ball was held Friday in the Exhibition Pavilion with splendor of ball gowns and glitter of police uniforms stealing the spotlight. Special guests at the ball were police officers from the U.S. who were in the city to attend the International Law Enforcement Co-Ordination Conference. Following the receiving line at 9 p.m. over 500 patrons danced to the tunes of the Big Band. win 9 Each child an individual stress personal achievement r IB I ri IB IB IB B By MAUREEN JAMESON Staff Writer Each child in a family has to achieve competence in a different way so he does not have to compete, and it is the responsibility of parents to find this way, according to Tony Miller. Dr. Miller and Professor George Mann of the University of Lethbridge faculty are leaders of the informal family workshop sponsored by the Canadian Mental Health Association and the U of L. Dr. Miller said parents should be responsive to the particular needs of each child, and if the youngster who badly wants an electric train happens to be a girl, why not give it to her? What is important, said Professor Mann, is what is meaningful to the individual. A child may actually be good in some field, but because he doesn't feel he is good enough, he defines himself as a failure. This creates a real problem. "Engineer situat ions where kids can be different," Dr. Miller said, and "hope they'll pick up something which they feel is uniquely their own." "We ask our kids to be honest with us today, and they are," said Dr. Miller. "We must be matter - of - fact and accept this." He said in his opinion "90 per cent of adolescents are at least experimenting with marijuana and hash, exactly the same as 90 per cent of the people our age experimented with booze."

Questioned about the nonconformist with long hair and patched jeans, Dr. Miller replied: "he is conforming; wearing more of a uniform than we ever do and more of a uniform than he ever will again." He emphasized that he considered this a most insignificant thing to judge a person by, adding that leading couturiers were now copying the youth fashions of "the Pepsi generation." "It is a fact," said Dr. Miller, "that teenagers have learned from us to identify with particular age groups and be intolerant of other age groups." "We have to accept the fact that there are other people in society than adults." There appears to be growing evidence of change in the relationships between children and parents, and children and peer groups, said Professor Mann, with children leaning more to peer groups in loyalty and confidence. One of the more significant aspects of teen behavior, said Dr. Miller, is a different set of values. "If this is me, why can't I be this way?" Dr. Miller said he was "firmly convinced there is no more sexual hankypanky than 20 or even 50 years, ago." They talk about it more, he said, but that doesn't mean they are more active. He claimed they are better equipped to handle the emotional business. A kid of today "will talk about what it is like to be you and what it is like to be me, instead of grope, grope, grope," he explained. On the differences between permissiveness and authoritarianism, Dr. Miller said "we tend to follow a method, usually what's currently fashionable, and we let the method get between us and the kids. This makes a phony relationship." He said we should "let the kids know we are human; that we do nasty things to each other, but we still like each other." A young person always wants to know parents are concerned about him," said Professor Mann. "It's not a matter of permissive n e s s or authoritarianism. They want to be reassured that you are concerned with them, even though they don't show it." There is a difference between permissiveness and freedom with responsibility, Professor Mann continued. "Some children see our permissiveness as neglect." The final workshop session will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday at the U of L west campus. +$n and out of L PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES $500 JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE ELKS lODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. Sec/ymea U BtMTICIAN NOW YOU ARE FINISHED SCHOOL And Desire too Learn a Profession . .
