The two drivers of the express train, Paes has contended that she is not entitled to maintenance since she was still married to actor Sanjay Dutt while they were living together. She played a direct role in the preparation of Gaudium et Spes (“The Church in the Modern World”). She sensed that not just this document but all of the Council documents taken together constituted a kind of fulfilment of everything that WUCWO stood for Nevertheless even for WUCWO Vatican II brought new things Bellosillo described it as involving “the painful stripping of the obsolete” and “joyful reception” of new things WUCWO AND FEMINISM 1964-1996 Many women feel that there is a value of having distinct organizations for themselves within the Catholic Church and this was the case with WUCWO Nevertheless WUCWO has continued to experience the tension of just how to help in the post-Vatican II process of “striping the obsolete” and the “joyful reception of new things” Pilar Bellosillo remained as president of WUCWO from 1961 until 1974 and in a parting speech she commented on changes in WUCWO that she had witnessed after the council She identified three major characteristics: that WUCWO now was becoming ever more international in its make up; that it exercised a commitment to ecumenism; and that in its social commitment it was increasingly using an inductive methodology of “See” “Judge” and “Act” WUCWO during these thirteen years was always a bit advanced and has evolved continuously since without fanfare although at times some normal tension was felt I could say that during these years WUCWO has become less European in its international responsibilities more open to the effective participation of other continents; within the reformist movement of the Church WUCWO has become more ecumenical more open to dialogue with other Christian denominations Inline with its desire to participateit has become less specifically “feminine” seeking to collaborate with individuals groups and associations of the other sex; according to its objectives of human promotion of women it has become an agent of development; according to its pedagogy which stems from life it has gone from a deductive to an inductive pedagogy which involves a reflection on action We could examine all facets of WUCWO and discover that in these thirteen years it has tried to be consistent with its aims and objectives in accord with the progressive development of society and the Church IRISH INVOLVEMENT After 1974-83 WUCWO underwent a period of Irish leadership Mrs Elizabeth Lovett Dolan a Dubliner became president having been involved with WUCWO previously as a representative of past pupils of schools run by the Sacred Heart Sisters in Ireland During this time the ecclesiastical assistant was the Irish theologian Fr Dermot Lane (who is currently the President of the Mater Dei Institute of Education in Dublin) The following decades witnessed the growth of WUCWO and in Africa it was particularly vibrant as is he case today But there was one additional issue to note about the experiences and policies of WUCWO as it moved through the 1970’s and 1980’s and that concerns its addressing of feminist issues As we all know feminism arrived as an important dimension of culture during these decades first in the developed North but also increasingly within the South also As WUCWO always sought to play the role of a kind of think-tank for national women’s associations the question of how to relate to the new feminist consciousness became of central importance Briefly put successive WUCWO approaches have emphasized the need for discernment and the need to make distinctions between what is authentic and inauthentic in the feminist project Without a doubt WUCWO finds much in modern feminist consciousness that is close to the ideals that the organization always struggled to realize As Pilar Bellosillo stated in 1974 WUCWO had always been a “reformist movement” promoting equal respect for women both within society and within the Church During her presidency Bellosillo founded a working group named “Women in the Church” which sought to publicize the discrimination suffered by women within the Church in order to make it evolve This having been said both during Bellosillo’s time and after WUCWO has consistently protested about an unbalanced portrayal of the Catholic Church in some feminist circles Furthermore it has criticized the portrayal of women’s sexuality in some aspects of feminist thougth which they deem not to be in women’s best interest They note with appreciation Pope Paul VI’s critique of the effect of a “contraceptive mentality” in culture which tends to be associated with a break-down in family life They agree with that pope that in many modern cultures practices of the expression of sexuality often tend to favour the selfish needs of men They point out that women tend to seek committed long-term relationships and are put at a disadvantage in a culture which does not support marriage They add that this problem extends to cause suffering for children who have needs of stable family life with the presence of both a father and a mother WUCWO and the UNITED NATIONS A further point to note here is that WUCWO has continued to play an active role in the United Nations as one of the earliest non-governmental organizations to be involved with it Its primary commitments are with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC); the “Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); “The Food and Agriculture Organization” (FAO); “The International Labour Organization (ILO); and the “Human Rights Council” (HRC) We can note that there is an orientation toward poverty alleviation in many of these organizations In this way we witness how national memberships from poor countries such as those in Africa are influencing the WUCWO agenda and how women’s concerns as experienced in developing countries will not always be identical with those articulated in the developed world WUCWO TODAY 1996-2011 In 1974 Pilar Billosillo had spoken of how “at times some normal tension was felt” as WUCWO struggled to find an appropriate response as Catholic women to the issues of the times It can be said that such tensions did not get less as WUCWO struggled with questions of just what balance to strike in engaging with feminist ideas This debate is experienced particularly keenly when WUCWO holds its international assembly every four years In 1996 a discussion began about moving the organization to a closer union with the Holy See by changing its status in canon law from being a “private international association” to being a “public international association” (see Canons 312-320) This shift involved WUCWO becoming unambiguously a voice of the official Catholic Church and led to a decision by some constituent groups to shift from full membership to associate membership Such groups remained “private associations of the faithful” and thus held a certain greater autonomy Thus while the overall number of associated women’s groups in WUCWO has increased in the last few decades there has actually been a certain amount of traffic in both directions If we have already described how feminist thought brought challenges for WUCWO from the 1970’s onwards We can add that from the 1990’s to today it has been increasingly clear that the phenomenon of globalization is the next big influence on culture WUCWO is ever-more convinced that globalization makes its work ever more relevant In their turn national women’s associations increasingly acknowledge how important it is for them to “think globally while acting locally” and so take on board the animation coming from WUCWO We might note that instruments of WUCWO’s influence include a web-page that includes a “monthly message” and a newsletter published three times a year Perhaps more important however is the fact that member organizations of WUCWO hold regional conferences every one or two years where ideas agreed upon at international level become promoted to delegates actually attending these conference We might say that more important again are the international assemblies of WUCWO held every four years and which set policy The most recent general assembly occurred in Jerusalem in 2010 and in the twelve resolutions it made we can witness how WUCWO now seeks to respond to challenges to the well-being of women that increasingly have a globalizing dimension: These resolutions included: 1? End the Use of Information Technology in Sexual Exploitation of Children 2? Promote a Covenant between Human Beings and the Environment 3? Rescue the Children of the Street 4?

2015 12:45 am Supreme Court of India Top News The government has opposed in Supreme Court a plea to bring political parties under the ambit of RTI Act saying this would adversely impact their internal working and political functioning Submitting an affidavit the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has said the Central Information Commission (CIC) erroneously ruled in June 2013 that political parties are public authorities under the RTI Act and hence are accountable under the transparency law “If political parties are held to be public authorities under RTI Act it would hamper their smooth internal working which is not the objective of the RTI Act and was not envisaged by Parliament Further it is apprehended that political rivals might file RTI applications with malicious intentions adversely affecting their political functioning” the affidavit stated The DoPT claimed that the CIC had made a “very liberal” interpretation of RTI Act “leading to an erroneous conclusion” that political parties are public authorities In its judgment the CIC had said political parties should be held accountable under the RTI Act since their constitution was akin to setting up a body by the government and they also performed public functions after availing various financial aid and concessions by the Centre But this judgment remained on paper and the parties did not comply with the mandate of RTI Act Complaining non-compliance applicants Subhash Chandra Aggarwal and Anil Bairwal of the Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR) approached the CIC which in March directed the DoPT to take action ADR and Aggarwal moved a PIL in Supreme Court seeking a declaration that political parties are public authorities and should disclose details of income and expenditure for public scrutiny A bench led by Chief Justice H L Dattu issued notice in July and the DoPT filed an affidavit last Friday stating RTI Act never envisaged to bring political parties under its ambit It said the CIC was wrong in its judgment since political parties cannot be termed as public authorities because they are formed neither under the Constitution nor under any law of Parliament Performance of public duty is also not a condition mentioned under the law for defining a body as a public authority it stated About checks on financial transactions of parties the DoPT said there were provisions under the Representation of the People Act and the Income Tax Act fastening a liability on them to make sufficient disclosure regarding income and expenditure Adequate provisions for explanations and penalties it claimed were also stipulated under these Acts and that Election Commission places all requisite information on its website These provisions ensure adequate transparency in financial aspects of a political party the DoPT said With a view to “annul the adverse effects of the erroneous conclusion by the CIC” the government said a Bill was introduced in 2013 to amend the RTI Act so as to specifically exclude political parties from the definition of public authority but it lapsed with the dissolution of the Lok Sabha in 2014 Retrograde step says AAP The Aam Aadmi Party on Monday opposed the Centre’s move to keep political parties out of the ambit of RTI Act The party called it a “retrograde step that will lower the credibility of the political parties” For all the latest
