The leadership weakness of the current administration has once again shown itself. This time, it affects millions of women around the world. Men from some the most hostile regions of the world are now in charge of Human Rights within the United Nations (U.N.). Men that currently have no or little respect for women or girls now get to decide the human rights issues for all females around the world, and yes that includes the women in the United States.
What could the women around the world have to look forward to from the men that are now determining human rights? Take a look at the countries in charge:
“…young women are jailed for specious reasons, then raped before being executed in a barbaric effort to keep them out of heaven.”
“Islamic government was to force all women to wear the Islamic hijab, covering their hair and their body. No makeup was allowed, and they could not be seen with anyone other than their husbands or relatives.”
“The government also placed severe limitations on freedom of speech and press, constrained the right of peaceful assembly and association, restricted freedom of movement, and limited freedom of religion.”
“’Brutal attacks’ on civilians.”
“’Horror’ at the recent massacre of several hundred civilians.”
“For decades, the women of Sudan have been suffering.”
One could consider the U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power one of the most powerful women in the world from the most powerful country in world, and all she could do is tweet “Yet again #Iran ran unopposed & was ’elected’ to Commission on Status of Women. Given record on women’s & human rights, this is an outrage.”
Her tweet should have never been an option, and it’s a clear indication that she is powerless as a U.N. Ambassador, and the current administration has no respect. It’s time to get the U.N. out of the U.S. and stop the millions that American taxpayers contribute to support bad ideas that continue to develop within the United Nations organization.
