So I read an article that a friend posted on facebook recently about abolishing Cultural Councils in the Greek world.
It is an interesting thing to read and consider. I couldn’t decide if I was outraged or agreed at first. She seems to have some good points, ones that make sense. But then there is a very different culture associated with these groups. Membership intakes and the process these members go through as well as values associated with their organizations and councils are important to them. Is it fair to dismiss them, particularly from an outside perspective? Ms. Hudgins herself is a part of an archaic practice. Dividing groups based on sex would also fall within her statements, would it not?
Then, of course, I had an important revelation. I’m not the one who should be deciding this. Nor is Ms. Hudgins. This isn’t our decision to make. And if she feels there is an imbalance that should be fixed, it is her responsibility as a member of the Greek Community to support all fellow Greeks and work toward changing that culture and those perceptions. She should be working for unity, not abolition.
So all that being said, I was wondering how my friends in MGC and NPHC organizations feel about Ms. Hudgins idea.
It also felt nice to see my Thesis topic and it’s importance confirmed.
