Default United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

"Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women's rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,"

Hillel Neuer said.

I doubt anyone is surprised by this and I could have just as easily posted in the joke forum.... can we move the UN to the junk forum?

They ARE a joke. Below is a C&P from Wikipedia-

On May 4, 2004, United States ambassador Sichan Siv walked out of the Commission following the uncontested election of Sudan to the commission, calling it an "absurdity" in light of Sudan's ethnic cleansing in the Darfur region.[11] One major consequence of the election of Sudan to the Commission was the lack of willingness for some countries to work through the commission. Indeed, on July 30, 2004, it was the United Nations Security Council, not the Commission, that passed a resolution—by 13–0, with China and Pakistan abstaining—threatening Sudan with unspecified sanctions if the situation in the Darfur region did not improve within the following 30 days. The reasons given for the action were the attacks by the Janjaweed Arab militias of Sudan on the non-Arab African Muslim population of Darfur, a region in western Sudan.

Sudan is still practicing Chattel Slavery- the buying and selling of humans as property.

And, yet:

http://us-foreign-aid.insidegov.com/l/166/Sudan

FTA: “...Sudan received a total of $101M in disbursed aid from the United States government in 2016, a decrease of 118% from the last reported total in 2015 ($221M).

The aid Sudan received is one of the highest amounts for all countries in Sub-Saharan Africa (avg. $685,220) and significantly higher than average for all countries in the world (avg. $549,739). This amount equates to about $2.51 per person based on Sudan's total population of 40.2M…."
