U.N. Women's Commission Debating Plan to Require Quotas and More Money

Appears to be paving the way for "a more radical U.S. President" when it meets next year

NEW YORK, Feb. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- The United Nations (U.N.) Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is meeting this week and next to push for "funding for gender equality" by imposing quotas that all nations will be expected to meet.  Concerned Women for America, an officially accredited Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with the United Nations, is monitoring the negotiations in New York.


Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, Director and Senior Fellow of Concerned Women for America's Beverly LaHaye Institute and also an NGO delegate representing CWA at the 2008 CSW, said, "CWA's NGO delegates will be working to provide opportunities for women, not quotas that force specific radical outcomes on member nations."


Crouse added, "At the U.N., 'gender equality' hinges on promoting universal access to abortion-on-demand.  Further, it views 'gender' as a social construct that imposes cultural definitions of male and female on persons who, they argue, ought to be able to blur the differences between masculinity and femininity.  Rather than address the content of those arguments during an election season in the United States, the CSW is putting in place the financial structures that will enable implementation of its agenda quickly under what it hopes will be a more radical U.S. President when the CSW meets in 2009."


Dr. Crouse is available for interviews while at the United Nations.
