Have you heard the shocking albeit unsurprising announcement by the United Nations that Saudi Arabia, the most misogynistic regime on the planet, was elected to the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women?
How is it even possible that the Saudis will be on a committee dedicated to the promotion of female empowerment and gender equality?
What valuable input can a nation beholden to state-sanctioned male chauvinism possibly have to offer when it comes to gender equity?
Who at the UN got paid off with copious quantities of Saudi petro-dollars to allow this abomination to occur?
And where, oh where, is the feminist movement with howls of outrage? Where are the street protests and online petitions?
Indeed the last time the feminist movement got their collective knickers in a knot over a UN initiative was last December when they successfully petitioned the UN to drop Wonder Woman as UN ambassador for empowering girls and women.
Meanwhile, real-life Saudi misogynists are going to be part of a Commission for the Status of Women.
Watch as I offer my theory about what’s muting the feminist outrage and share a revealing exchange I had with one of the Peeved Beavers who wanted the Hudson’s Bay Company to drop the Ivanka Trump clothing line.
They say her father's a misogynist based on some crude locker room talk uttered years ago, yet she wouldn’t say a word against the anti-woman Saudi regime.
