Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta '8-THE LETHBRIDQE ftsptsmbsr Equality given lip service instead of necessary action OTTAWA (CP) A top United Nations spokesman says too many governments only pay lip service to the principle of equal rights for women. Helvi Sipila, assistant secretary-general for social development and humanitarian affairs, said at the opening of an inter- national women's-nghts Conference this week that "many governments accept in principle the equality between the sexes and have enacted progressive but "the de facto situation remains bleak This discrepancy between principle and reality can be removed only by "joint plann- ing of both men and women and, secondly, by including ac- tivities aimed at improving the status of women in development programs at the planning stage Mrs. Sipila, 59, brings a wealth of experience in -The Herald Family QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH CwtiMd DwtUI Mechanic 303-SthSttMtSoI Metcalf Building PHONE 328-7684 women's rights to the confer- ence, a scene-setter for 1975, decreed by the UN as Inter- national Women's Year. A lawyer from Helsinki, she represented Finland on the UN Commission on the Status of Women from 1960 to 1968 and in 1971 and 1972, acting as chairman in 1967. She since has been a- special UN spokesman on the status of women and family planning and was appointed to her pre- sent position in 1972. Need action She said the success of International Women's Year depends largely on concerted action at international, national and regional levels, and this action must consist of more than establishing goals. "There is a basic need to es- tablish national, state or federal commissions or com- mittees with a mandate to recommend measures and priorities to ensure equality...." She singled out France, which has a minister responsi- ble for the status of women, and Australia, which has a prime ministerial adviser on women's matters, as countries that may be leading the way toward equality for women. Countries present for the opening were Argentina, Aus- tria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Egypt, France, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Jamaica, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mali, the Netherlands, Poland, the Soviet Union, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, Yugoslavia and Zambia. Botswana, the Cameroons, Kenya, Laos, Peru, Indonesia and the Phillipines are also sending delegations. The host delegation head. Rita Cadieux of Ottawa, was acclaimed chairman, the usual practice at UN conferences. Serves UN Ms. Cadieux, 47, a native of Shawmigan, Que., has been a spokesman on social, cultural and human affairs for the sec- retary of state for 12 years and has been a special UN delegate. The delegates were welcom- ed by External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen, who described the conference as a "necessary step" toward full equality between men and women. He said the government's dedication to equality "in all aspects of Canadian life" would be demonstrated when Parliament resumes con- sideration of an omnibus bill on women's rights. The bill, introduced in May but set aside when the general election was called, would tidy up several anomalies in eight federal acts. Oh hum!

The diagnosis was "depression." Recently I applied to the hospital (in which I was a patient) for a part-time job. I was able to supply excellent references and a very im- pressive work record. One of the questions on the applica- tion form was, "Have you ever received psychiatric treatment for an emotional Of course I answered honestly. I did not get the job and I later learned that no one even bothered to check with the people whose names I gave as references. There is no question in my mind as to why I wasn't hired. It was because of my "psychiatric history." From now on if I ever see that question on an application form again, I will not answer truthfully. What a shame tc put such a stigma on one who has had help with emotional problem. And how dreadful to make liars out ot people. Will you comment please? Smarter Now Dear Smarter: I believe that question should be declared illegal on all job application forms. Actually it does not weed out the unstable or incompetents. It serves no useful purpose whatever. I consider individuals who have had psychiatric therapy or professional counselling "extra special." It is evidence that the person recognized he had a problem he couldn't handle alone and was willing to do something about it.
