UN Human Rights Expert: UK Is Most Sexist Country On Earth

Some of you may immediately ask, "but what about Islamic countries that allow men to legally abuse women and prevent them from leaving the house? What about countries that demand women provide witnesses to rape or face execution? What about countries that don't allow women to drive, to vote, or even leave their own house without a man's permission? What about countries that ignore 'honor killings'? What about countries that still allow slavery? What about places that publicly beat women for not covering their bodies?"

You have to be kidding. Those things are nowhere as bad or as sexist as availability of porn or taking pictures on a subway.

Sexism in Britain is more widespread than in any other country due to a 'boys' club culture', a United Nations official has concluded.

Rashida Manjoo, a South African human rights expert, was charged by the UN Humans Rights Council to monitor violence against women in the UK and report back to them. [...]

In particular, she highlighted "the easy availability of porn, the use of social media including influencing young children around images" and "harassment on the [London] Tubes", referencing the current 'Women Who Eat On Tubes' trend of people taking pictures of women eating on the London Undergound, and posting them onto Facebook.

And, in case you are wondering, Manjoo is a Muslim. That may explain why she completely ignores the abuses of women in Islamic countries while condemning western countries.
