Academics array against ‘Golden Mother’ award

Kozhikode: Women academics from Universities and institutions of higher learning across the country have petitioned the Vice Chancellor of Calicut University against implementing the ‘Golden Mother’ award. Terming it ‘anti-democratic’ and ‘anti-woman,’ they want him to desist from such a move. The proposed award seeks to honour women who have accomplishments in 18 different fields, even while excelling themselves as ‘model’ mothers. Academics accuse the women’s studies centre of CU, which abets the move, of turning its face against the advances made by feminist movements in India. 58 signatories, including from JNU, have rallied against the award.
