“Kingdom of Male Domination” Saudi Arabia elected to UN Council on women’s rights

Brian LilleyArchive

Saudi Arabia is getting elected to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women for a four year term. I wish I could say that’s unbelievable, but unfortunately, it’s very believable and very real.

A country that requires all women have a male guardian make decisions for them, escort them when they’re out of the house etc., will sit on the commission from 2018 until 2022.

The main delegate will surely be a man but perhaps he’ll have a woman sitting three seats behind him, Saudi style.

Watch as I explain why this completely inappropriate move and others that have been made at the Geneva-based institution, just demonstrate how badly this body needs massive reforms.

The only good news is that not every country backed the insane idea that the Kingdom of Male Domination should be on a world body for women’s rights.

But we don’t know who backed them and as UN Watch points out, at least 15 of the democratic countries voted for the Saudis.

Too many see the UN as a source of good, and I won’t deny some good work has been accomplished but we can’t ignore the graft, corruption, and the cover given to dictatorial regimes.

The UN isn’t a body of the world’s democracies. It’s a body of all the countries including the horrible ones.

By allowing the Saudis seats on these bodies the UN is letting them use the organization to launder their reputation when what they should be doing is exposing the brutal reality of life for women in that country.

If the UN won’t reform, then it’s time to leave the UN.

Deborah yeah , but then they will make him stop the flow of terrorists as they will now be in danger and we do not have enough military to protect them like the US.

The UN is so dissolute and corrupt now, not to mention demented, that they would probably put Hitler in charge of gun control and North Korea in charge of nuke disarmament.

The UN is a bad comic book with an insane story arc.

Drew – if he boots them out of NY, they may set up in Canada. The pompous ass in our parliament will roll out the blood red carpet for them.

I sure hope Trump boots them the hell out of NY.

Amnesty International (AI) is hypocritical. They are names as a predatory org against Canadian children and Family. AI is politically active in Canada to promote a law (the criminalization of parent to use minor force in child-rearing) which has, in ever instance studied, substantially increased serious assaults on children, other forms of child abuse, and child & youth violence rates. This is another predatory org harming kids under the cloak of “child protection”. http://www.keep43.ca/app/download/7246167999/K43+Boycott+List+Updated+2017-04-12.pdf

I noted during the reading of the results Turkmenistan was also elected to the UNCSW. When I travelled there four years ago, it was a police state’s police state. Also, decreed that the school aged girls had to wear traditional dresses, I think for the tourist value. Yep, another country the UN is proud to have as a member.

Women’s and Girls’ Rights

Saudi Arabia’s discriminatory male guardianship system remains intact despite government pledges to abolish it. Under this system, ministerial policies and practices forbid women from obtaining a passport, marrying, traveling, or accessing higher education without the approval of a male guardian, usually a husband, father, brother, or son.

Authorities also fail to prevent some employers from requiring male guardians to approve the hiring of adult female relatives or some hospitals from requiring male guardian approval for certain medical procedures for women. In February, a member of the Senior Council of Scholars, the highest state body for the interpretation of Islamic law, issued a fatwa stating that women are not allowed to visit a male doctor without their male guardians. They are not allowed to expose parts of the body with the exception of a medical emergency. All women remain banned from driving in Saudi Arabia.

Likewise, under un-codified rules on personal status, women are not allowed to marry without the permission of their guardian; unlike men, they do not have a unilateral right to divorce and often face discrimination in relation to child custody. In September, the Supreme Judicial Council issued a decision to allow women granted custody of their children to handle all affairs related to their children including obtaining official documents. To travel outside the country with theirchildren, however, women still require the permission of the children’s father .

In a welcome move in April, the Shura Council, Saudi Arabia’s highest consultative body, directed the Education Ministry to study the possibility of introducing physical education for girls in Saudi public schools, which, if enacted, would end the longstanding ban on sports for girls.

Great report Brian Lilley.
UN is backward, corrupt and offers no value. It should be declared dead already!
As others have pointed out, Trudeau is throwing millions at the UN and sees it as a good investment, he wants to join the other corrupt members who have taken over. (Islamic persuasion, taqiyya & intimidation)

“Saudi Arabia is getting elected to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women for a four year term.”

This is clear evidence that the UN has outlived any usefulness and is nothing but a pathetic shadow of what it once was decades ago. Yet Trudeau grovels at the foot of the UN. What does that tell you about the moral character of Canada’s Prime Minister?

I can’t believe all the mean and nasty things people are saying about the UN.
It cannot possibly be as bad as you guys are making it out to be, after all our great and knowledgeable leader Justin bin Trudeau is in love with this entity called the UN, and everyone knows that Justin bin Trudeau gets his directions from none other than the all knowing, genius of Gerald Butts and other Muslim ministers the clever PM put in his cabinet to advise him and guide his decisions.
So the UN can not be so bad – can it? Justin bin Trudeau gave them millions of our tax dollars and he would not of done that if they were as bad as you guys make them out to be. After all Justin bin Trudeau and his Butt pal and Muslim ministers must be trusted – shouldn’t they?
Justin bin Trudeau agrees with everything the UN says and does and we all know that Justin bin Trudeau is never um, ah, um, a, um, ah,wrong, is he ah, um, a, um, um, ah,youknow, um?
I would bet that Canada was one of the countries that voted for them under orders from Justin bin Trudeau and his Butt plug. The misogynistic bastards.

The largest voting block in the UN consists of Muslim Countries.

It is long past time for the USA, UK, Aus, NZ and Canada to walk away from this Islamic Organization. It is Despotic.

Unfortunately for Canadians, Pimp Minister Trudeau is in bed with these Scum, He wet dreams of himself being part of it.

The UN must be abolished entirely. It is run by the globalist left corrupted to the bone by the islamists. It is a big lie, there is no human rights there, nor women’s rights.

The U.N. is about as useless as two tits on a bull. The End.
