Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETH8RIEGE HERALD Wednesday, September 22, 1971 Ladies Day at the track is a serious business Tea-drinking days over for CWL LADIES DAY AT THE DOWNS It was Ladies Day at Whoop-Up Downs on Tuesday and lethbridge and District women turned out in the sunny wealher to fry their luck. Blazer suits and ponchos appeared briefly in the crowd as did two unidentified women who won the daily double ta'rdnp home on a bet. But it all got a bit frustraling for the wee tot at righl. -Walter Kcrber Photo. REGINA (CP) Canadian Bishops will be asked lo speak out in Rome next month on be- irll of equal rights for women n the Roman Catholic Church, an executive of the Catholic Women's League of Canada said lere. The CWLC will bring more han delegates together icre this week. A decision by its executive to end a telegram to the bishop's meeting in Edmonton support- ing proposals put forward by other Catholic women's organi- zations last month will be dis- cussed at an open session later probably Thursday or Friday. Mrs. J. J. Matthews of To- ronto said the telegram asks (he Canadian delegation of bishops to "make a synodal intervention advocating that all discrimina- tory barriers in canon law, tra- dition and practice be re- moved." Many of the canon laws that discriminate merely are old tra- ditions that have been recorded and now are out of dale, she said, citing the rule that a woman must keep her head cov- ered in church. The executive wants lo see women treated as full and equal members of the church and in- cluded in discussions at all lev- els. Mrs. Matthews, second vice- president of the lOS.OOn-membcr organization, also said that the league is proposing a study on the role of women in the church to be carried out during the next year. "We will discuss setting up a study program to look into Uie widening ,-ighls of women in the church and the responsibilities tha1 go along with them. She said shi doubts the church has discriminated against women any more than the rest of society has in the but society has changed "and the canon law has to catch up." The league has kept step with changes in society, she said. The image of a tea-drinking, hat-wearing organization fitted wilh the times when a tea was one of the ways of raising money and helping women get to know each other and their community. But the league now is con- cerned with world poverty and with a more outward-looking role. League members donate one per cent of what they spend on luxury and personal items. Raising the money is Impor- tant, said Mrs. Matthews, but the awareness that the woman has the money to spend on her- self and that others are less for- tunatr also is important. Last year Lhe poverty pro- gram was S] richer through liicsc voluntary donations. The women also raised another SIO.COO through marches ind other projects.

C. D. Gibney, director of the Kcgina diocesan council, s n i d hero that women can best fulfill Lhcir role as women by not trying tc do exactly the same work as men in the church. "Men and women are equal buL they are not the hr said in an interview, "ft is not j jusl physical differences, either, j but other factors that make the i woman different from the man.'1 I Father Gibney is a member of the diocesan council which will welcome more than dele-i gates of the Catholic Women's! League of Canada to its annual convention here this week. He said he believes that the woman should use her basic, womanly differences in fulfilling her particular role in serving God. Women can and do serve on j parish pastoral councils. They also can be elected, when these are formed, to diocesan and na- tional councils. There is no di- vine law, either, that says a woman could not work as a priest. WOULD BE DIFFICULT "It would be very he said, referring to social and cultural restrictions and de- mands made on priesls. "J would believe Hint any woman would find it hard to undergo the difficulties." One o[ the matters that will come before delegates for de- bate is the role of women in the church. Other resolutions will concern the women's expanding role in public life.
