American Democrats voted at the UN to support the Iran regime in their pursuit of dominating Women’s Rights, shocking the world and sending Iran’s women plumenting into despair.
“Sky News host Rita Panahi says this is further evidence “the UN is a hopelessly corrupt clown operation” after Iran was elected to the United Nations’ peak body on the status of women. “As we all know, women in Iran are treated like second-class citizens… they do not enjoy equal rights under the law and are even locked up and beaten by the state for refusing to wear the hijab,” she said.
“So naturally, the UN has elected the Islamist regime to its peak women’s group. In fact, Iran has earned a four-year term on its Commission on the Status of Women, which is meant to be the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. “Though the ballot was secret, UN Watch has determined that at least four of the 15 EU and Western Group democracies voted for Iran.”

February 28, 1979: Gender discrimination was extended to the sports arena and women’s athletic tournaments were cancelled one after the other.
March 2, 1979: Women were banned from judgeship. Hundreds of female judges and juristic interns were left in limbo.
March 4, 1979: The right of divorce was granted exclusively to men, enabling them to unilaterally decide for divorce at any time of their liking.
March 7, 1979: Khomeini issued a fatwa on the compulsory veil, obliging women who worked in government offices to cover their hair at work.
May 22, 1979: The first time a woman was flogged in public.
July 12, 1979: The first time three women were executed on the charge of committing vice.
June 29, 1980: For the first time, two women were stoned to death in Kerman, southern Iran. The verdict was carried out even before the adoption in 1982 of the inhuman Retribution Law by the mullahs’ parliament (Majlis).
By the end of 1981, the gender-segregation was implemented in public transportations, recreation centers, seaside, and other public areas.
According to Article 1041 of the Civil Code reformed and amended on November 5, 1991: Marriage of girls before 13 solar years and boys before 15 solar years is conditioned on the permission of the guardian on the condition that a qualified court deems it appropriate.
According to Article 102 of the Punishment Law ratified in 1983, women who appear in public and in the streets without the religious veil are punished by 74 lashes of the whip.
Article 8 of the mullahs’ Constitution institutionalized the duty of “promoting virtue and forbidding vice.” In the year 2010, the mullahs’ president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, placed greater emphasis on this law by supplementing it by another bill.
In 2010 another act was embraced to “spread the culture of chastity and Hijab” according to which at least 26 government agencies were instructed to carry out duties to enforce the compulsory veil on Iranian women.
In 2012, the regime implemented an extensive plan in all universities, designating gender quotas for admission of female students. According to this plan, girls were completely banned from applying for B.S. or B.A. in 77 fields of study.
In mid-April 2013, Khamenei offered a plan to increase the country’s population, by boosting the average birth rate. The mullahs’ parliament followed suit and passed a legislation which openly placed further restrictions on women’s employment and family rights.
In 2014, the mullahs’ parliament passed two articles of a new bill which lent support to those who promote virtue and forbid from evil. The rest of the bill was adopted in 2016, which gave priority to the views of the mullahs’ supreme leader and was readily implemented.

EXCEPT AMERICAN DEMOCRATS ARE ENABLING THEIR ABUSERS
UN Watch is calling on U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield and EU states to condemn the UN’s election of Iran to a 4-year term on its Commission on the Status of Women, the “principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.”
The vote yesterday by the UN’s Economic and Social Council, reported first by UN Watch, sparked outrage among human rights activists. “Electing the Islamic Republic of Iran to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, the Geneva-based human rights group. “It’s absurd — and morally reprehensible. This is a black day for women’s rights, and for all human rights,” said Neuer.
At Least 4 EU & Western Democracies Backed Iran
Though the ballot was secret, UN Watch has determined that at least four of the 15 EU and Western Group democracies on ECOSOC—which include Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Latvia, Germany, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States—voted for Iran.
Iranian Activists, Victims, Decry ‘Surreal’ Vote
“This is surreal,” tweeted Iranian women’s rights activist Masih Alinejad. “A regime that treats women as second class citizens, jails them for not wearing the compulsory hijab, bans them from singing, bars them from stadiums and doesn’t let them travel abroad without the permission of their husbands gets elected to the UN’s top women’s rights body.”
At an event at the Swedish parliament, along with Dr. Javid Rahman, the UN special rapporteur, Masih Alinejad the founder of anti compulsory hijab movement in Iran, condemned the election of Islamic Republic of Iran to UN’s commission on the status of women.
“Yesterday in this event in Swedish parliament along with the UN special rapporteur, I condemned the UN’s election of Islamic Republic of Iran to its commission on the status of women. Please listen & share the message of Iranian women’s rights activists with your government,” Alinejad posted on Twitter.
