Belgian Coverage: U.N. Elects Saudi Arabia To Women’s Rights Commission - CATEGORY Prime News: TITLE

Again, the United Nations has acted irrationally. By secret ballot recently, the U.N. Economic and Social Council’s 45-member U.N. Commission on the Status of Women elected Saudi Arabia to become a new member of that group. Can you believe that?

Here is a country where women can’t drive, where women are second-class citizens, where medical treatment has to be approved by a husband or other close male relative. The same holds true for enrolling in an institution of higher learning, where approval is needed to travel outside of the country.

This is a country where every woman has to have a “guardian” who controls her life. Saudi women have severe clothing restrictions. Saudi women are restricted from going to government buildings, restaurants, hotel lobbies, and even public transportation without a male chaperone. The women there are not allowed to open a bank account without permission.

Yes, this is the same country that was elected to represent women’s rights in the United Nations.
