UN MEMBER STATES VOTE YES AND MAKE HISTORY
Today we have made history. The United Nations and its Member States heeded the call of Iranian women to remove the Islamic Republic of Iran from the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women, setting a new precedent in favor of women and girls, not just in Iran, but everywhere.
Today’s vote marks a pivotal step forward with the U.N. Member States removing a country from the Commission with an appalling record on women’s rights from its membership.
