|Issue 10 - February 1973|
bill, once it becomes law, will make discrimination against people
because of their sex illegal.
Women do not have full equal rights and opportunities in education, training and employment.
The equal pay act, due to come into force in 1975, will not give women equality unless discrimination is made illegal. (Job descriptions can be changed, and industrial apartheid based on sex can be introduced.)
At the moment women form about 37% of the country's labour force - nearly all of it cheap labour.
The anti-discrimination bill is important - please help by signing
the national petition in Durham market place on Saturday 3 Feb.
