Canada's Royal Commission on the Status of Women presented 167 detailed recommendations to the House of Commons. The proposals aim at promoting women's equality in a society "unjustly conceived and controlled by men." The massive 500-page document, the result of four years of investigation, called for abortion on demand for pregnancies up to three months, elimination of discrimination against females In employment, and for child care centers accessible to women of all income levels. As a step against elimination of discrimination against women in modern society, the Commission recommended 18 weeks paid maternity leave, guaranteed annual income for the heads of all one-parent families, and a pension plan for housewives. The report also asked for special measures to spur women's employment in every field and demanded an end to "sex-typing" of occupations in all fields. The Commission proposed recruitment of women by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, admittance of women to federally operated defense colleges, and a required plan for increased female representation in the Canadian Senate. "I ask no favors for my sex. I sur- render not our claim to equality. All I ask of our brethren is 1 that they will take their feet off ournecks, and permit us to stand up-right on the ground which God has designed us to occupy." Sarah Grimke, The EqualiLity of the Sexes and the Condition of Women, p. 10, Boston, 1938
