Women’s economic empowerment

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 8:50 am Sat 14th September 2013

UN Women’s Knowledge Gateway for Women’s Economic Empowerment will launch in September 2013. It is an online platform for women’s economic empowerment.

The article goes on to quote the United Nations;

Women bear a disproportionate burden of the world’s poverty. They are often paid less than men for their work and employed in insecure, unsafe and low-wage jobs. According to UN Women, they receive just 10% of the world’s income yet do 66% of the work.

Interesting to note the economic data released from the United States this week; following the 2007 depression the employment rate for women is now above that of 2007 but more than 2 million American men who had a job prior to the downturn remain unemployed. So women have insecure positions? Really.

Is there a country in the world that has a higher employment casualty rate of women than men. Please tell me if there is, maybe New Zealand men would like to live there.

Women do 66% of the work? Yes for the last century men have been sitting on their bums watching women build the cities of the world, the roads, the railroads, the energy plants and infrastructure that we see around the planet. Yeah right.

Where do people get this dribble from? Some women obviously have too much spare time on their hands.

  1. Thanks for bringing us this report Downunder.

    The UN has long been a machine for lies and propaganda aimed at promoting feminist privilege. The UN’s World Health Organization devised a system of ‘research’ into violence against women that set a low, low standard of social science, designed to be capable of producing ony data that make men look bad and women downtrodden. Unfortunately, feminist researchers throughout the world including NZ have copied WHO’s research design for the same purpose. See some critiques of the UN’s war against men here, here (this critique was also included in a 2006 post at MENZ Issues by Julie. A detailed critique of the WHO research was published here on MENZ Issues; (unfortunately a technical problem affecting a lot of historical posts caused quotation marks and other punctuation to be distorted).

    The UN has also continued to misinform the world about the true profile of ‘human trafficking’, claiming that it has been mainly of women and children for sexual enslavement when in fact it is mainly done to males to exploit their labour. Some commentary on this was done at MENZ Issues recently.

    The UN appears to have been co-opted into feminism’s war against men and towards human domination. I guess that’s why they employed Helen Clark.
