Iran Elected to the United Nations Women Rights Commission

Women of the World, rest easy! The United Nations has chosen the next country to join the Women Rights Council to defend your rights: Iran. That’s right, the nation that beats women in the street, allows the raping of women in custody (here), raids human rights organizations (here), stones women to death (here), arrests women for “satanic” clothing styles (here), bans makeup on television (here), enforces segregation based on gender (here), searches for women with tans to punish (here), and blames women for earthquakes (here) will now sit on the United Nations Women Rights Council.

After putting Libya on the Human Rights Council and makes Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann the United Nations General Assembly President (here) seems to have an bottomless capacity for irony. Next it will make North Korea a member on a political rights commission.

The Commission on the Status of Women'(CSW ) is dedicated “exclusively to promote gender equality and advancement of women.” What is incredible is that Iran was elected without a single voice heard in dissent.

  1. I’ve searched high and low for US ambassadors to the UN’s email addresses in regards to “human rights.” I came up with zilch!

    The naming of Iran to head the UN delegation on women’s rights is akin to putting a cat in charge of an aviary. Are they serious? This is the same nation that outlaws suntans on women, that blames earthquakes on immoral female behavior, etc., etc.

    What in the world is in the heads of the UN — and why can’t we send them (or at least find) email to express our opinions — we pay 26% of the UN’s budget to operate and can’t even tell them how we feel.

    I say shut the organization down — it’s so out of touch with reality anyway!

  2. And Dr. Mengele was doing everything that he could do to support the youth in Asia. It is all a matter of perception…..or not….
