Commision on the Status of Women, 66th session

31 March 2022
Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of climate change, environmental and disaster risk reduction policies and programmes

Peter Smith followed on behalf of CCI the Commision on the Status of Women, 66th session. Herewith his summary:

This was the usual nonsense that the UN produces each year. It was very unbalanced, 68 references to rights and only 4 references to responsibilities. The Bible gives the reverse. We got 116 references to gender. There were 5 good references to families. Reproductive health / rights had 10 references, but no “progress” for 27 years. A mother was mentioned 3 times and a father once. Husband and wife had no mention. Sexual orientation and gender identity did not get into the final document.

For the first time I got to listen to a trans woman who spoke for Costa Rica. There was much mention of LGBTI etc, in the general discussion, but none of this got into the document.
