UN Women: A Powerful New Agency for Women and Girls

(YouTube link)

For those who are faithful to Biblical Christianity, many realize it has been on a misdirected sleigh ride to the wrong destination for years. With the influence of New Age and Cultural Marxist philosophies, the Church, the family, and the role of the husband and wife have been blurred. Much of the fault lies in the lap of feminism. In his book Grave Influence, Brannon Howse explains,
"Feminism is not about equal rights for women but about the destruction of a patriarchal society in favor of a matriarchal society. The goal of feminism is the destruction of the family by eliminating the husband and father as provider, protector, and principled leader of his home...
Feminism has accomplished its goals—the destruction of the American family through the destruction of the father and the resulting rise of the welfare state. Political correctness is all about creating chaos by destroying the American family, replacing the role of the father with the role of the State, normalizing sexual perversion, and ridiculing traditional morals and virtues that stem from Christianity."
Why is This Agency Needed?
In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. In doing so, UN member states took a step toward accelerating the organization’s goals on gender equality and the empowerment of women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact.[1]

The new agency consolidated four separate entities: the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the Division for the Advancement of Women (DAW), the International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (INSTRAW), and the Office of the Special Adviser on Gender Issues and Advancement of Women (OSAGI).

Goals of UN Women
The goals of UN Women, as stated through their organizational mission statement, is as follows:
  • To support inter-governmental bodies, such as the Commission on the Status of Women, in their formulation of policies, global standards and norms.
  • To help UN member states implement the above standards, ready to provide suitable technical and financial support to those countries that request it, and to forge effective partnerships with civil society.
  • To enable member states to hold the UN system accountable for its own commitments on gender equality, including regular monitoring of system-wide progress.[2]
What they meant to say is that through their gender equality strategy, the U.N. will achieve gender equality globally by implementing these goals:
  • Change in social attitudes where women will no longer be required to take her husband's surname on marriage.
  • The UN will prohibit making distinctions between the roles of mother and father, and teaching a traditional understanding of the family.
  • All women will be free to pursue a career after marriage. 
  • Enforced gender equality in the role of women in Christian churches.
  • Changes to equality in education opportunities for boys and girls.
  • Equal work for equal pay.
  • Equal opportunity in politics and to occupy high positions in business.
  • Men will increasingly work in occupations considered as female occupations. This will include men staying at home to do child rearing.
  • Elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls [3] [4
The United Nations Population Fund, an agency with a strategy for birth control, has declared that women have a right to equality. "Gender equity" is one of the goals of the United Nations Millennium Project, to end world poverty by 2015; the project claims, "Every single Goal is directly related to women's rights, and societies where women are not afforded equal rights as men can never achieve development in a sustainable manner.

Leadership of UN Women
On September 14, 2010, it was announced that former President of Chile Michelle Bachelet was appointed as head of UN Women. During General Debate at the opening of the 65th General Assembly of the United Nations, world leaders approved the creation of the body, and welcomed Bachelet's as the inaugural head. Their goal was to be operating by January 2011.

A Closer Look at Michelle Bachelet
  • Bachelet was the first woman president of Chile and is considered as a moderate Socialist.
  • While President of Chile, she has been viewed as a feminist. She was formerly a physician who practiced pediatric medicine at public clinics in poor neighborhoods. While in office, her government liberalized contraception policy by making the morning-after pill available free at state-run hospitals for girls over the age of 14 years old.[6
  • She was President of Chile when the massive 8.8 quake hit Chile in February 2010. She finished her term and left office less than one month later.
  • Other major gains for women under her government include the large number of free day care centers and nursery schools established throughout the country. This gave women more freedom to enter the labor market. There was also a law aimed at bridging the gender wage gap, which also grants labor benefits to domestic workers.  
  • Bachelet plans to encourage member states who have not ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), so they can reach their goal of 100% participation. [7]
The United Nations has made it their goal to change the life of every woman and girl in the world. As you will begin to notice, in the coming months, more agencies will be created within the U.N. to assist in ushering in of the world government. Women in the Arab countries, a patriarchal society, will be most affected by these laws.

The UN's goal is to eliminate the traditional biblical roles of the family. The system of beliefs will reflect that of Universalism/Theosophy. As Alex Jones has said, their end game model is China.

As for the ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in the United States, President Obama has not signed this treaty. The UN legislation for international women's rights is something he desires to see signed before he leaves office.
