US only advanced nation refusing to sign "Convention to Eliminate All Forms of Discrimination Against Women"
So I always watch these science of the bible and history of the bible shows on NG and History. There's a woman on there by the name of Carol Fontaine and she's always saying things that sort of sound Atheist. So...I figured I would dig up some info on her. What I found out, however, disturbed me far more about the US view of women (surprise) and of how CBS treated her when she did not want to bash Islam like they wanted.
This says who hasn't ratified it: http://www.amnestyusa.org/women/cedaw/countries.html
The Heritage Foundation says that: "A close examination of the reports issued by U.N. committees monitoring the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Convention to Eliminate All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) shows that these committees are pushing an agenda that counters traditional moral and social norms regarding the family, marriage, motherhood, and religion." found: http://www.heritage.org/Research/InternationalOrganizations/BG1407es.cfm
So essentially, because of the Christian view that women are less than men this now means that women shouldn't be considered equal? The US is the ONLY advanced nation who has NOT signed it. Why haven't we heard about this???
