UN Elects Largest Oppressor of Women, Saudi Arabia, to Woman’s Rights Commission

Quote:
Saudi Arabia isn’t known for gender equality. In fact, the Saudi government’s idea of fair play among the sexes is ensuring women their husbands can only have three more wives. Saudi women truly have zero rights in society. Ranking Saudi Arabia among the 10-worst-countries for women, the Toronto Star wrote, “In oil-rich Saudi Arabia, women are treated as lifelong dependents, under the guardianship of a male relative. Deprived of the right to drive a car or mix with men publicly, they are confined to strictly segregated lives on pain of severe punishment.” So, imagine the surprise and dismay the world is now exhibiting with the knowledge the United Nations has elected Saudi Arabia as a member of its Women’s Rights Commission called the “Commission on the Status of Women.”

What is the UNs women's rights commission?


Quote:
The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. A functional commission of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), it was established by Council resolution 11(II) of 21 June 1946.
The CSW is instrumental in promoting women’s rights, documenting the reality of women’s lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Nope. He is omnipresent.

The United Nations is the preeminent institution of multilateralism. It provides a forum where countries can come together to share burdens, address common problems, and seize common opportunities. The UN helps establish the norms that many countries -- including the United States -- would like everyone to live by. Throughout its history, the United States has seen the advantages of living in a world organized according to laws, values, and principles; in fact, the republic was not yet 30 years old when it first went to war in defense of international law (attacking the Barbary pirates in 1804), and it has done so multiple times since, including in the first Gulf War. The UN, for all its imperfections -- real and perceived -- reflects this American preference for an ordered world.

The United States is not an island unto itself. Whether we like to admit it or not we depend on many other nations--for many different reasons. We care what happens in our backyard. We are affected by the decisions made by other nations and in times of crisis we need each other. Global challenges also require global solutions, and few indeed are the situations in which the United States or any other country can act completely alone.
Who supported us in every war? Who shares intelligence with us? Who contributed to our devastation after Katrina? Who includes us in medical updates? Ebola, Zika, influenza and communicable diseases like measles, mumps, pertussis. AND who stood beside us after 9/11..?

We may be a very powerful nation, but we can NOT stand alone in the world. We need our allies and they need us.

Hopefully Saudi Arabia can talk some sence into them in regards to this international plague known as women's lib. They have it figured out over there.
