Western human rights duplicity

"Belgium’s foreign ministry wanted Saudi Arabia to know it had voted to elect the kingdom to the UN Commission of Women’s Rights, leaked internal emails have reportedly revealed." "Saudi Arabia was ranked third worst for gender equality in a list of 144 countries compiled for the World Economic Forum’s 2016 Global Gender Gap report. Yet it gained the approval of 47 of 54 countries on the UN's economic and social council. The British government has refused to deny that it voted in favour of Saudi Arabia's inclusion."
