US Supports, With Silence, Iran's Addition to a US Women's Rights Body

By USDR

The Obama administration on Wednesday criticized Iran’s election to the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women(CSW) – but neither the U.S. nor any other delegation objected when given the opportunity to do so, thus allowing Iran to get the seat “by acclamation.”

Iran will now serve on the CSW, a body dealing with gender equality and the advancement of women, for another four-year term, having already been a member since 2011.
