UN women's rights resolution passed despite backlash
United Nations (United States) (AFP) - A UN General Assembly committee has agreed a landmark first resolution on women's rights defenders such as Malala Yousafzai, despite a hard fought campaign by an alliance including the Vatican to weaken the measure.
A Norwegian-led coalition, which has prepared the resolution for months, had to delete language that condemned "all forms of violence against women" to get the text passed by consensus late Wednesday.
I can't help but think that this is where extremist left wing multiculturalism has led us. I'm all for understanding and supporting cultural values, morals & traditions or customs as long as what the add to the melting pot is positive or has no negative effect. However, since when is violence against women a tradition, a value or custom? The UN is a dirty ****ing joke. These concessions go against their very own charter. Hang them all.
