Women’s organization is breaking stereotypes on campus

first_imgReddIt printAn effort to challenge stereotypes Wednesday night helped bolster some first-year community scholars who are establishing their identities at TCU.The students attended the kickoff event for Sisters Transcending and Reaching Success (STARS). STARS is bringing the #iamiamnot social media movement to TCU. STARS president Jasmine Tucker said the campaign aligned with the organization’s goal of transcending others as well as themselves.The campaign gives students a chance to break free from stereotypes that have been placed on them by writing “I AM/I AM NOT” statements on a whiteboard and posting them on social media.One example came from community scholar Nia Brookins, a junior theater and writing double major, who wrote, “I am a TCU student from an inner city…I am not a sob story.”Senior psychology major and community scholar Briyet Sigala first heard about the campaign from a leadership conference she attended. She said the campaign was something she wanted to bring to TCU.“Your first impression that you have of a person is going to stick with you forever,” Sigala said. “I just kind of wanted to break down the stereotypes and why we use them, how they help us, and how they can also hurt us.”Briyet Sigala spoke to students about bringing the I AM/I AM NOT campaign to campus.For the community scholars in attendance, the idea of transcending societal norms and expectations was appealing.Obed Sanchez, a first-year community scholar majoring in music education, said, “Being a minority on campus, sometimes I don’t really feel like I connect well with the majority.”Sanchez said attending the STARS event changed his perspective.“This opened my eyes and made me realize I should start taking initiative,” Sanchez said. “If I want to be a part of this campus, I need to be the one to go out and speak to others.”The Community Scholars Program consists of exceptional students from urban high schools with high minority populations in Fort Worth, Arlington and Dallas. The program offers more than $3 million in scholarships each year. The STARS event is one of many the scholars could attend this semester as a program requirement.Students anonymously wrote their I AM/I AM NOT statements, which were later posted on the TCU STARS Instagram account.Sociology lecturer Dr. Lynn Hampton spoke Wednesday night about the importance of recognizing diversity and using it as an advantage at TCU and in the career field.“You’re going to be communicating with diverse people in a diverse society,” Hampton said. “The more comfort and familiarity you have in engaging across those diverse lines, the better prepared you’re going to be.”Although the majority of students in attendance were of a minority, Hampton said anyone can benefit from the message of breaking barriers and creating diversity.“Even if I’m speaking to an already informed and enlightened group of students as it relates to inclusivity and diversity, I’m still wanting to foster that spirit of leadership across the campus,” Hampton said.Sigala said STARS intends to keep the “I AM/I AM NOT” campaign running throughout the semester, hoping more students will respond and embrace their differences while supporting one another.Students not only used the #iamiamnot, but also #weareTCU to remind students that despite their differences, they are a part of something bigger at TCU, Sigala said.“At the end of the day, regardless of what you are, you’re always going to be a Frog,” Sigala said.

Then BJP President Ashish Shelar, addressed a letter dated March 3, 2017 to the Divisional Commissioner, Municipal Administration informing him about the said meeting held on that day and about the decision appointing Manoj Kotak as the Group Leader of the BJP in MCGM. The BJP decided to remain neutral in the MCGM and to play the role of a “Paharekari” i.e. to maintain surveillance. In the General Body Meeting of the MCGM held on March 30, 2017, Ravi Raja from the INC demanded that the post of the Leader of Opposition be given to the BJP, considering that it is the largest Party in Opposition, and in case the BJP declines, then it be given to the INC being the second largest Party in opposition. This meeting was adjourned by the Mayor in order to seek a legal opinion from the Legal Department of the MCGM in this regard. The Legal Department issued an opinion dated April 7, 2017, wherein it was opined that the post of Leader of Opposition should be offered by the Mayor to the second largest party i.e. the BJP and if the second largest party declines, it be offered to the third largest party i.e. the INC. This legal opinion inter alia took into consideration Section 371A of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act, 1888 Following the aforesaid, a meeting of the MCGM was convened on April 11, 2017. At this meeting, Manoj Kotak was offered the post of the Leader of Opposition. However, he informed the Mayor that the BJP was not interested in occupying the post of Leader of Opposition. Since the BJP refused to accept the post of Leader of Opposition, in compliance with the legal opinion obtained by the Mayor, the post of Leader of Opposition was offered by the Mayor to Raja Ravi of INC being the second largest Party in Opposition. This proposal was accepted and as a result Raja Ravi came to be appointed as Leader of Opposition in the MCGM. Subsequently, after a lapse of almost 3 years from the appointment of Raja Ravi as Leader of Opposition, the new President of the BJP’s umbai Unit, Mangal Prabhat Lodha addressed a letter dated February 28, 2020 to the Mayor requesting that the petitioner, Prabhakar Shinde be recognized as the Group Leader of BJP and that he also be appointed as the Leader of Opposition.SubmissionsSenior Advocate Dr.Birendra Saraf appeared on behalf of the petitioner. He submitted that the use of the word “shall” in Section 371A of the MMC Act indicates that the provision is mandatory and that the use of the words “for the time being” indicate that the Leader of Opposition need not be permanent. Moreover, he contended that the decision of the Mayor is not ‘final and conclusive’ insofar as recognition of the Leader of Opposition is concerned and that he has proceeded on an ex-facie erroneous understanding and application of the legal position which has led to the perverse and illegal decision. If the Leader of the largest Opposition Party is willing to take up the responsibility, the law does not deny him the same, merely because he had initially expressed unwillingness to do so for various considerations. There can be no waiver of a statutory right, Saraf argued.On the other hand, Senior Advocate Ravi Kadam appeared on behalf of the Mayor of MCGM. He argued that the BJP has passed over its right to the post of Leader of Opposition and by following the due process of law, which the BJP has also accepted, Raja Ravi (Respondent No.4) of INC is performing the role of the Leader of Opposition since the last three years. Merely because the BJP wants to more actively oppose the ruling party, it is not entitled to stake a claim to a post which is not vacant. There is no instance contemplated by the provisions of law, which permits a party to take a decision as to whether it will be more active or less active in opposition, Kadam contended.In conclusion, the former Advocate General of Maharashtra said-“A lawfully and duly appointed Leader of Opposition cannot be removed merely because the BJP decides that it wants to be a more active opposition than it already is.”JudgmentAt the outset, Court relied upon the High Court’s ‘very illustrative and elaborate’ decision in Vishnu Shivram Mehere vs. City of Akola Municipal Corporation wherein Court has interpreted Section 191AA of the Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporation Act, 1949, which is identical to Section 371 of the MMC Act. The aforesaid decision duly recognizes the importance of the post of a Leader of Opposition and provides for a mechanism to deal with a situation where the leader of the largest party in opposition, declines the said post. This Court came to the conclusion that there was nothing wrong in recognizing a Corporator belonging to the party having the second highest strength as the Leader of the Opposition in the circumstances where the largest party refuses to shoulder the said responsibility. This is exactly what was done in 2017, when Respondent No.4 was appointed Leader of the Opposition after the BJP’s refusal, Court noted.Moreover, the bench observed-“At the relevant time, i.e. in 2017, none of the parties before us appear to have contested the fact that BJP was the “party in opposition having the greatest numerical strength”. As a result, in compliance with the mandate of Section 317A, the post of Leader of Opposition was duly offered to the Leader of BJP. However, for reasons best known to them, the BJP and its Leader expressly declined to accept the post. As a result, Respondent No.4 came to be appointed as the Leader of Opposition in compliance with the mandate of Section 371A and the principles enunciated in this Court’s decision in Vishnu. In one sense, therefore, the appointment of Respondent No.4 attained finality in the facts and circumstances then prevalent. The appointment of Respondent No.4 is today sought to be unsettled on the ground of a mere change of mind by the BJP, as there is no other judicially recognized circumstance canvassed before us, such as change in the party in opposition, or its numerical strength, which are some of the accepted parameters for re-visiting the decision to change the post of the Leader of Opposition.”Finally, Court referred to Manoj Kotak’s statement from the General Body Meeting held at March 23, 2017 wherein he as the Group Leader of BJP had expressly refused to accept the post of Leader of Opposition. The bench noted-“We are in respectful agreement with the aforesaid finding of this Court that an “Unwilling person or party cannot be trusted with the responsibility of the office of the Leader of Opposition.” This being the law, a mere volte-face or change of heart or decision to increase one’s extent of participation whilst in opposition, cannot justify the removal of an incumbent Leader of Opposition who was otherwise duly appointed in accordance with law (and as a result of the BJP’s express refusal to accept the post).”Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

This week’s case round up

first_imgThis week’s case round upOn 5 Dec 2000 in Personnel Today Delayedresignation did not prejudice claimAbbey National v Robinson, unreported November 2000 EATRobinsonmade a formal complaint about her manager after being bullied by him for abouta year. He was then disciplined and Robinson was told he would be transferredto another role. But at a meeting in August 1997, Abbey National indicated themanager would not be transferred after all and offered Robinson alternativeemployment, which she declined. In July 1998, Robinson resigned and brought asuccessful claim of constructive dismissal. The tribunal found that Robinsonhad resigned because of the effect of Abbey National’s conduct after the Augustmeeting. AbbeyNational unsuccessfully appealed, arguing the tribunal had misdirected itselfby disregarding the fact that the resignation took place almost a year afterthe repudiatory breach – that is, the failure to transfer the manager in 1997.The EATheld the tribunal was correct to consider the entire period from the time ofthe repudiatory breach until the resignation.

Cashmorebrought successful sex discrimination claims against both firms. The tribunalheld there were two acts of discrimination, one by Roselec when it refused tointerview Cashmore, another by Anystaff when it knowingly aided the commissionof an unlawful act by Roselec. Further, the tribunal found that Anystaff hadprevented Cashmore from finding out the real reason for being refused work. Thetribunal awarded £3,000 compensation for injury to feelings against bothRoselec and Anystaff.On appeal,the EAT rejected the argument that Cashmore had suffered injury to feelingsonly once and that the £3,000 should be split. It held that even though thediscrimination arose from one episode, there were different areas of injury:Roselec’s refusal to interview Cashmore injured her feelings, as did thepossibility that Cashmore’s chances of finding work through Anystaff wereinhibited.
