As UN Watch says:
“Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. “It’s absurd — and morally reprehensible.”
“This is a black day for women’s rights, and for all human rights,” said Neuer.
“Saudi discrimination against women is gross and systematic in law and in practice. Every Saudi woman,” said Neuer, “must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death. Saudi Arabia bans women from driving cars. Why did the U.N. choose the world’s leading promoter of gender inequality to sit on its gender equality commission?”
How can any one have faith in our so called elites and other ‘leaders’ when this is allowed to happen to an agency that is suppose to fight for human rights.
So the ordinary person, looks at his or her television and sees and hears that one of the great anti women regimes in the world gets elected to a Commission of the Staus of Women , charged with the responsibility to support equality for women .
And then theses elites ask why so many are fearful of globalization ?
Ask, no more !
