‘Golden mother’ move under a cloud

Kozhikode: The move of Calicut University to bestow ‘Golden Mother’ awards on career women aged 50+ in 18 chosen fields, who also fulfil their ‘duty as mothers’ has invited criticism from academia and women’s’ organisations. Prof K A Fathimath Suhara sees a design to further shackle women to the picket, denying them their professional identity. Instead of ensuring scholastic excellence VC’s attempt through Centre for Women’s Studies to establish that only good mothers are capable of creating a better society is viewed by Vidhu Vincent, media person, as reinforcing the stereotype of woman as domesticator, which is then sought to be projected as the desirable role model.
