‘Golden Mother’ award move condemned

Kozhikode: Teachers and students of Calicut Univ. oppose the award proposal as it is simultaneously anti-woman and a shame on academia. Teaching staff including HoDs wrote to the VC and Syndicate, saying that it was never discussed with them. Further, it reflects a male-centric vision of glorifying motherhood at the expense of trivialising gender discrimination. Students too say that CU should instead aim at demolishing female stereotypes and ensure basic hostel facilities first. Earlier eminent writer Taslima Nasreen too had castigated the move and spoken exclusively to ‘Mathrubhumi News’ on the issue. VC is determined to proceed despite mounting opposition.
