From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: While we are making apologies, and paying compensation . . . . . .

let�s not forget the women our governments and the private sector have abused and mistreated since Confederation. From 1867 until 1929 women were not considered �persons� under the British North America Act. It seems incredible that women were not allowed to vote or hold public office for 60 years. We would have perished as a nation without them.

For decades following that women were not allowed to work if they were married and had to quit their jobs if they became pregnant. They had to fight to be allowed to open a bank account even if many were far better at handling the family finances than their spouses.

Women were largely confined to occupations that �they were suited to� and were paid less than a man doing the same work. The concept that women were dependent on men has taken too long to die. Following WW-II, women whose husbands were killed while serving were granted a �widow�s pension� as compensation � but, the pension ended if the widow remarried. Paternalism was hard to erase.

That is particularly troubling as during the war years 1939 � 45, millions of women filled occupations they had never been allowed to try prior to the war. They replaced men who were overseas in a wide variety of occupation and kept the economy running and our war effort robust. However, after the war, we tried to return to the norms of earlier years.

The list of discriminatory practices and unfair treatment is too long to list fully. We need to deal with it while we still have many alive who suffered the injustices.

Men and women remain quite different in a variety of ways that cannot be legislated away. Each gender has within it a wide variety of differences. That is what makes our lives go �round and ultimately adds zest to our personal relationships.

Equality before and under the law, equality of opportunity and equality of rights and responsibilities are a different matter that we still struggle to accept without gender bias. Misunderstood equality has damaged our interpersonal relationships and our society.

We have inadvertently allowed ourselves to become less polite and respectful of one another. The struggle to accept equality must not override social decorum, decency, diplomacy, ethics, regard and respect. We are in a struggle to improve as a society, not engaging in a barroom brawl.

The current spate of accusations of sexual assaults, bullying, harassment, and rape that have been going on for more than a century is a pointed reminder of how far we still must go to achieve the equality of persons we declared almost 90 years ago. Progress has been disgustingly slow.   

That is why we need to apologize to Canadian women we have demeaned, discriminated against and abused over the past century and a half. Discrimination has not ended. We have reconciliation and healing ahead of us. That requires us to openly admit past discrimination and injustices and make an honest commitment to do better.

While no amount of compensation can be adequate, some compensation is evidence of the sincerity of our apology. We need to stop harassment, particularly sexual harassment, and move on to respectful reconciliation. We know what we need to do; we must summon the will to do it.

Reconciliation: the restoration of friendly relations 

John Feldsted
