Can you believe this outrage? Can a country who stones and beats their women be considered fair judges of Human Rights for women?

U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women's Rights

NEW YORK — Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged "immodest."

The UN is corrupt, and this certainly proves it. Iran should be investigated for Human Rights violations of women, not added to the commission.

  • The fox is in the hen house now.  Won't matter how many Iranian women get beaten, see their kids stolen, or are murdered.  The UN certainly won't stand up for them. 


    Nice work screwing women, UN.

  • IMO the Congo and Zimbabwe shouldn't be in this group either. Women and girls are routinely raped, murdered, kidnapped, and circumcised there too, particularly in the Congo.

    This article sure makes it sound like nobody bothered to speak against this except for Iranian citizens... I didn't even know there WAS such a group. What is their purpose, exactly? Obviously if they were making any kind of noticable stand for women's rights, the situation in Iran wouldn't be what it is. Does anyone know what this group does, or has done? I'd like to know.
