Another human-rights irony at the U.N.

Anne Applebaum: “Five days later, another committee, the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women — a body dedicated to “gender equality and the advancement of women” — put out a turgid news release announcing its new members. Among them will be . . . the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Which is fine, unless you think that the “advancement of women” should not include stoning them for alleged adultery.”
