Because it’s the UN. Obviously. Like the rest of the left, its job is to attack the West and to excuse the East.
Sexism in Britain is more widespread than in any other country due to a “boys’ club culture”, a United Nations official has concluded.
Rashida Manjoo, a South African human rights expert, was charged by the UN Humans Rights Council to monitor violence against women in the UK and report back to them.
Manjoo is listed as one of the “Wise Muslim Women” and in her wisdom, a woman from South Africa, deemed the world’s rape capital (though it’s in danger of losing out to Sweden due to the Muslim colonization of that country) has decided that the UK is more sexist than the rest of the world… because of a boys’ club culture.
No word on the boys’ club culture of Afghanistan or Iran.
Ms Manjoo shared her preliminary findings on Tuesday and said: “Have I seen this level of sexist culture in other countries? It hasn’t been so in your face in other countries. I haven’t seen that so pervasively in other countries. I’m sure it exists but it wasn’t so much and so pervasive.”
In 1998, one in three of the 4,000 women questioned in Johannesburg was raped.
More than 25% of a sample of 1,738 South African men from the KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape Provinces admitted to raping someone when anonymously questioned; of these, nearly half said they had raped more than one person.
It is estimated that over 50% of South African women will be raped in their lifetime and that only 1 in 9 rapes are reported.
But… but there’s an old boy’s club in the UK. And they meet and have drinks and play polo while wearing plaid.
99.3% of Egyptian women experienced sexual harassment
But it’s the Muslim world so it must be okay.
Ms Manjoo, who has reported on violence against women in more than 10 countries since 2009, including Somalia, Zambia, Algeria, Jordan and America…
Let’s take a look at Somalia.
In 2008, Amnesty International released a report of a 13-year-old girl who was killed after her family reported she was raped. A number of eyewitnesses say she was brutally beaten to death in front of 1,000 spectators, buried neck high and pelted with stones. Allegedly, during the stoning, nurses were sent to check if the girl was still alive. They reported yes, so they removed her from the ground and continued to beat her until she died.
But don’t worry, the Wise Muslim woman is on it. And by ‘it’, I mean Italy.
Italy must do more to protect women from violence and urgently address the underlying structural causes of gender inequality and discrimination, an independent United Nations human rights expert warned after visiting the country.
Maybe if Italy converts to Islam, Manjoo won’t have a problem with it.
