Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Major U.S. Political Issue Women Using Influence To Change Status NEW YORK (AP) It took American women 70 years to get the vote, almost half a cen- tury to get an equal rights amendment to tlie constitution approved by the House of Rep- resentatives, 200 years to re- ceive college education and 116 years to get into New York's McSorley's bar. But this year seem to be coming into their own. American women are using political influence, legal rights and sheer determination to change their status from that of a second-class citizen isolated in the home, to a leading force in all segments of society. It hasn't been an easy strug- gle and the fight is far from over. Respite significant ad- vances in legislation and oppor- tunity, in some areas women are worse off than they were 30 years ago. There are fewer women in politics today than 10 years ago and fewer women in top govern- ment positions than during other federal administrations. Women's share of PhDs and law degrees and professional posi- tions is less than it was in the Depression year 1930. While more and more women are entering the labor force yearly, they predominate in the low-paying, menial jobs of in- dustry. Seven out of JO clerical workers are Male man- agers and officials outnumber women 6 to 1. LONG WAY TO GO Though there are laws pro- hibiting sex. discrimination, women still often earn less than men for the same job. In some cases separate seniority lists keep them froir advancing to top positions. Despite the recent flurry of "firsts" for women, many feel they're still a long way from real equality. Women can finally ride on a horse racetrack but they can't work overtime in several states. Two women earned U.S. Army general's stars, but in four states a wife's earnings are under the complete control of her husband.

"Women h a v e n't even readied the level of tokenism lhat blacks are says Representative Shirley Chisolm "W omen have been brain- washed to be content with their role as second-class citizens." "Women have experienced a gradual and persistent decline in status as measured by ocu- pation, income and education when compared to sociol- ogy Prof. Dean Knudsen of Pur- due University says in a report in which she concluded women will remain in an inferior post' lion at least for another genera, tion. There now are more than 29 million working women who represent almost 45 per cent of the female population, an in- crease of almost 100 per cent since 1940. But the median an- nual wage for a woman working full time is while for a man it is says the labor department. Indisputably women are mov- ing into many new puter programming, electronics, engineering. But they are still restricted in their choice of jobs by a variety of so-called "prot- ective laws." Ten states specify the maxi- mum weight women can lift or carry. Eighteen states prohibit night employment and 25 pre- scribe the number of hours women can work. In 25 states there are laws based on social conceptions of what is a proper job for a woman; no woman Local March Cancelled There will be no Miles For Millions Walk in Lethbridge this year, said Ralph Tennant, chairman of the local commit- tee. He said no planning had been done yet and there was not suf- ficient time to Organize a cam- paign at this late date, because the walk is held the first week of November. However, Mr. Tennant said if enough people contact him in the very near future who are willing to help promote a walk, then the decision might be re- versed. There was locally raised in last year's walk for the 14 local agencies sponsored. may be a bartender in Ken- tucky or Rhode Island, for ex- ample; no gas or electric metre reader in Ohio; no bellhop in Washington. It isn't that hordes of women want to be bellhops and barten- ders, say crusaders for women's rights, but shouldn't they be allowed to choose for, issue of the 1972 political cam- thcmselves? The U.S. Court of Appeals declared in one case that the individual woman should have "the power to de- cide whether or not to take on unromanlic tasks." Women's groups aim to pro- mote women's rights as a major paigns. "One of the biggest gains foi women has been in the enor- mous, exploding consciousness that women now have of ttreir power to change says Betty Friedan, a leading fighter for women's rights.

Whenever I enter a store I feel as if I am being watched. Yesterday was the limit. 1 was trailed out of the store by a woman who asked to see the sales slip for the purse I picked up on the sales counter. When I showed it to her sho apologized. The incident made me so nervous I had to take two nerve pills when I got home. I have never stolen a thing in my life and I resent being treated like a common thief. Merchants are complaining because business is bad. It might get better if customers were treated like decent citizens, which most of us are. R. S. In The Nation's Capital DEAR R. S.: Of course most people are decent citizens, but the dishonest ones seem to be increasing in number and shoplifting losses are reaching alarming proportions. Last year in the Washington D.C. area alone, the merchants suffered losses approaching The reason dope. Users say shoplifting is the easiest way to support the habit. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the government continues to close down methadone treat- ment centers, because "we can't afford them." Write to your Senators and Congressmen, folks. And attach this column to your letter. People in public office usually look twice at something from a newspaper. Confidential to Heartsick in Warren, Ohio: Dry your tears, Buttercup.
