Women Beware: Saudia Arabia Charged with Shaping Global Standards for Women's Equality

Medea Benjamin

It’s hard to sink to a greater depth of hypocrisy than voting Saudi Arabia onto a UN Commission charged with promoting women’s equality and empowerment. And yet, on April 23rd, that is precisely what the UN Economic and Social Council did. Of the 54 countries on the Council, 47 of them agreed to add Saudi Arabia to a four-year term on the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

Why are ANY men on this commission anyway? This Commission should be made up of women from all across the globe....NOT MEN!!

But what about Gender Equality? :wink:

And what does that "feminist" Linda Sarsour who has defended Sharia and Saudi Arabia have to say about this now?
