Believe it or not: UN elected Iran as member of its Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)

Bambi posted in the past about Saudi Arabia’s membership in the UN’s Human Rights Council (another similar joke 😊, except that it is not funny :(!).

Today, it is the turn of Iran to secure “membership” in the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). If this is a joke, it surely has a bad taste.

These “elections” within the UN tell us something about who controls such international organizations. It tells us also about all the political and business shenanigans in our world.

Does anyone genuinely care for women’s rights abroad?   

To conclude this post, today is a sad day for women all over the world, not just in Iran… This day is an insult to the intelligence of Iran’s women (and all their fellow citizens).
