Here are some fun memes from the EGM of AWARE that happened on Saturday, May 2, 2009.
a) “Shut Up and Sit Down” – a statement made by one of the executive committee members when a member was speaking from the floor. Nothing to do with Sit Down, Shut Up though :-).
b) “I’m on Page 73” – a statement made by a self-declared-appointed Feminist Mentor, Dr Thio, who said that a reference was made about her in a 2007 AWARE publication. It appears that she is trying to draw some credibility because she was mentioned in a AWARE publication.
c) 1,441 the number of votes in favour of ousting the executive committe. 761 was against the ouster.
