AND FEMINISTS ARE COMPLETELY SILENT, OF COURSE
Check out all that Yemeni empowerment
Yemen is the worst place on earth for women. So the UN just appointed Yemen as its vice-president of gender equality and female empowerment.
Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, is understandably taken aback:
“How could the UN choose Yemen, a country that tolerates female genital mutilation, denies women hospital treatment without the permission of a male relative, and counts a woman’s testimony as worth half that of a man?” asked Neuer.
“We remind the UN that women in Yemen cannot marry without permission of their male guardians, and face deeply entrenched discrimination in both law and practice, in all aspects of their lives, including employment, education and housing.”
The UN is garbage. No, scratch that; the UN would need to improve by a factor of millions before it could even be considered in the same category as garbage.
