ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN APPOINTED TO UN WOMEN’S RIGHTS COMMITTEE
No joke: the Islamic Republic of #Iran was just appointed to the @UN_Women‘s rights committee that judges complaints of women’s rights violations.
Yes, a day after the regime sentenced women’s rights lawyer Nasrin Sotudeh to 38 years prison & 148 lashes.
According to @UN, the violations that #Iran will judge include:
• Stereotypical attitudes towards role of women
• Violation of women’s rights defenders’ freedom of expression & assembly
• Deaths & torture of women in custody
• Impunity for violations of human rights of women
If it wasn't the UN, it would seem like this appointment was made as a joke.
