AT LEAST four Western democracies voted to elect Iran to the United Nations women’s rights commission, according to UN Watch. The secret ballot leaves us surmising which the countries were.
AS this tweeter observed, electing Ayatollah Khamenei’s Islamic Republic of Iran to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist the town’s fire chief.
What exactly is the UN’s definition of women’s rights – a relative, multicultural one rather the universal one? And doesn’t that contradict its one of its fundamental purposes – of promoting social progress and human rights?
Feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
