Husband would accuse me of being silly,

I have the upper hand

The Day We Overthrew the Fundies (for now)

On 28 March 2009, a group of unknown women took control of a leading feminist group called AWARE during its AGM.

It later transpired that these women were members of  the same Christian Church with alleged rightwing fundamentalist leanings. They told the press that they were unhappy with that they perceived to be AWARE’s pro-gay/pro-lesbian slant in its programmes and wanted to step in to bring about a change.

Never before has the term “Steeplejacking” ever been used in this country, especially since it has always prided itself in being a secular state, made up of people of various races and religions.

The nation was therefore transfixed by the saga.

The ousted “Old Guard” of AWARE convened an EGM to seek to pass a resolution for a vote of no-confidence against the new ExCo.

2 May 2009 was the EGM date.

More than 3000 men and women turned up for the EGM. Many were new members of AWARE, having signed up at the last minute simply to vote at this EGM.

These pictures were taken during the 7-hour long meeting. 

Victory!

Final count:

1414 – yes to removal of ExCo

761 – no to removal of ExCo

 

Yes we are in!

We have big plans for the Red Room.

It will be a place to hang.

and watch the going-ons in the neighbourhood

it will be a place to get work done

if only we can motivate ourselves…
