UN Puts Saudi Arabia on Commission Responsible For Promoting Female Empowerment and Gender Equality
The United Nations chose Saudi Arabia, the country that covers women in black tents, doesn’t allow women to drive nor considers women actual human beings in charge of “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women”.
Makes perfect sense to me.
Via The Daily Caller:
The UN’s Economic and Social Council voted by secret ballot to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women.
It is the principal international organization responsible for the “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the commission’s website.
Saudi Arabia, a country notorious for its suppression of women’s rights, was ranked 134th out of 145 countries for gender equality in 2015. Saudi women are largely confined to the home under the direct supervision of male guardians, usually relatives, known as walis. A Saudi woman must obtain their wali’s permission to travel, marry, engage in business or undergo some medical procedures.
Women in Saudi Arabia were not allowed to vote or participate in politics until 2015.
Saudi women also suffer high rates of domestic abuse, in addition to legal limitations. Saudi Arabia’s Makkah region recorded its highest amount of domestic violence cases in 2016, a trend seen across the country.
Saudi Arabia should be condemned for their abuses towards women. Saudi Arabia is a hell hole for women especially because of Islam. Sharia law doesn’t give women any freedoms and the liberals and feminists continue their love affair with Islam. Shame on the United Nations and all who sit idly by.
