UN Commission on the Status of Women

Everyone is commenting on the travesty that sees countries such as the Sudan and Iran on the UN Commission on the Status of Women.  It makes perfect sense to me.  If the commission had been named “Commission for the Protection of Women,” or “Commission for the Liberation of Women,” things might have been different, but but it’s obvious that the Sudan and Iran are perfectly clear about women’s “status”:  per Allah’s inviolable decree, they are at the bottom of the pecking order and need to remain there.  At long last, these nations sit on the perfect bureaucratic vehicle for pursuing their “feminist” agenda.

    The UN/Henny Youngman style of politics. Youngman, was well known for his rapid one-liners and best known for …”Take my wife, (pause) please”. Not so funny anymore and even actually morose in Iran, because they do take her.
     
    When Iran defended its human rights record at the Human Rights Council last February, it pointedly included women in its delegation.
    In introducing one of them, Prof. Mahboubeh Mobasheri, delegation leader Mohammed Larijani declared, “This lady is the chancellor of a huge university in Tehran.”
    He did not mention that Alzahra University is a female-only institution, or that Mobasheri’s predecessor – Zahra Rahnavard, wife of green movement leader Mir Hossein Mousavi – had been forced out of the post by hardliners in 2006.
