What does the UN think Saudi Arabia can teach us about gender equality?

In these tricky – not to say dark – times there is one place to which we can always turn for light relief: Geneva. The city itself may be unamusing. But it does play host to the world’s most hilarious organisation – the body which calls itself ‘the UN Human Rights Council’ (UNHRC).

A few days ago, the Council voted to appoint members for the 2018-2022 term of its ‘Commission on the Status of Women’, a UN agency ‘exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.’ Among those appointed to the Commission was that notable supporter of gender equality – Saudi Arabia. Best of all is that – as the excellent UN Watch points out here – at least five EU member states must have voted to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission.

    Who cares. Let them behead 10,000 and parade around the Berkeley campus.

    • Antifa would support that!

      Are the beheadings to happen at Berkley – and targeting the faculty, staff, and students? If so, not quite fair – they need to get the Antifa crowd also.

    “What Does The UN Think Saudi Arabia Can Teach Us About Gender Equality?”
    Nothing. It’s not intending to. Why Saudi Arabia is there is to occupy a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women. As the UN is all about unity, in general no resolutions are made and nothing gets done without a unanimous consensus. But being on the Commission, they can essentially derail any motions for their being condemned for their treatment of women. This explains the presence of all sorts of repressive regimes being on UN human rights committees – pure self interest in preventing them being criticised.

    Shhhh, those valiant western feminists, who always know better and always demand we listen to them, surely are about to say … nothing.

    Hopefully they can teach us that ‘gender’ is not ‘sex’. After that they can show how they ensure that they have no uppity women, and certainly no women allowed to drive.
