Iran Takes Women’s Rights Leadership Role at UN

If the very mention of the United Nations does not make you laugh out loud, you must not have heard who just won a leadership position at the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), a characteristically farcical UN circle jerk that is supposed to advance women’s rights:

The United Nations’ body dedicated to “gender equality and the advancement of women” this week handed Iran a key role in evaluating “injustice and discriminatory practices against women” – on the same day as an Iranian court reportedly sentenced a women’s rights advocate to 38 years’ imprisonment and 148 lashes.

No member of the CSW raised an objection.

The UN is rotted through with moonbattery. Therefore, women’s rights are never the issue, because eroding Western Civilization is always the issue.

As an aggressive opponent of Western Civilization, Iran is well-suited for any UN leadership role. Never mind that it is a place where — in stark contrast to the USA — women truly are oppressed.

Iran has for years ranked near the bottom of the World Economic Forum’s annual “Global Gender Gap” report, which measures gaps between women and men in areas of political empowerment, economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, and health and survival.

Regarding women’s rights advocate Nasrin Sotoudeh, who got in such big trouble for not wanting to wear a hijab and for allegedly insulting supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,

State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said Tuesday the U.S. was “outraged” at the reported sentence, calling it “beyond barbaric.”

The lines are clearly drawn. America represents civilization. Iran represents the opposition. The United Nations insidiously supports the latter.

Yet American taxpayers are forced to fund the UN. But at least we no longer have a president who favors Iran (see here, here, here, here, and here).
