On March 20th, the UN women's rights body, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), adjourned its annual meeting condemning only one of the 193 UN member states for violation of women's rights, Israel. Do you agree with the CSW's decision?

Israel is not the only country that violated women's rights. There are many more. Almost all countries are still violating women's rights to some extent.

Stoning women because a man got people to lie that she committed adultery against them so they can marry someone else ? circumsizing young girls? Get outta here. There are other countries that are just as bad or worse.

Here's a great comparison of how the ME has regressed when it comes to women's freedoms. Sickening in the 21st Century.

Israel is worse than all of the other countries in the region where there are militant groups, child brides, rapes, denying education and ability to drive vehicles. Alright, UN. ✌️I love how these groups focusing on human rights are so anti Semitic.

Lol. The entire Middle East and most of Africa deserve condemnation, but they're the ones that run the UN.

This is why america has to stand up for isreal. Because no one but us and our english-speaking allies will. How do you claim Israel is violating women's rights when it is surrounded by theocratic countries that support executing women for being ind.?

Obviously they are a political hack organization with absolutely no credibility. Perhaps if Israel would follow the Islamic states example of "good treatment of women". Would they now compliment Israel? Their actions are ringing so loudly in my ears

Israel? Where women are allowed in combat roles, allowed to drive, allowed to go outside without a man, allowed to sing and dance in public?

I'm pulling the anti-Semitism card here.
It's probably just because they're Jewish.

I believe that Israel is the only nation in the Middle East that allows Muslim women to vote. Maybe Turkey too.

Actually, Saudi Arabia allowed women the opportunity to vote. Whether their votes are included in the count is anybody's guess.
