ENG: Sample letter to your head of state re UNCSW

This is a sample letter to your President/Prime Minister/etc. regarding the refusal of any country to stand up against the Islamic regime’s accession to the UN Commission on the Status of Women:

Dear (name of your President/PM):

I am writing to you in outrage at the refusal of [your country’s name] to stand up and deny a seat on the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women to the most virulently misogynistic, gender apartheidist regime in the world, the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Your government declined to uphold its duty to stand against the well-known brutalities the Islamic regime inflicts upon women. By seating the Islamic regime on the UN’s Commission on the Status of Women, not only do you give the regime ill-deserved legitimacy on the international stage, but you allow that government to propagate its misogyny throughout the world, given the Commission’s central role in setting global policy on gender equity and the advancement of women.

I fundamentally reject this action by your government and demand as a citizen of [your country’s name] that you immediately take steps to ensure the rapid removal of the Islamic regime from the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

  3. Monsieur le Président, Monsieur le Premier Ministre,
    Je suis indigné(e) que la France n’ait pas mis son veto à l’obtention d’un siège à la Commission sur le statut des femmes de l’ONU par le pays au monde le plus violemment misogyne, pratiquant le plus largement la ségrégation des sexes, la république islamique d’Iran.
    Votre gouvernement a refusé d’accomplir son devoir et de s’opposer aux célèbres brutalités que le régime islamique inflige aux femmes. En installant le régime islamique à la Commission sur le statut des femmes de l’ONU, non seulement vous accordez au régime une légitimité qu’il ne mérite pas, mais vous laissez ce gouvernement propager sa misogynie dans le monde entier, étant donné le rôle central de la commission pour déterminer la politique globale sur l’égalité des sexes et la promotion des femmes.
    Je rejette totalement cette action du gouvernement et exige, en tant que citoyen(ne) français(e), que vous preniez immédiatement toutes les mesures nécessaires à l’éviction rapide du régime islamique de la Commission sur le statut des femmes de l’ONU.
    Je vous prie de croire, Monsieur le Président, Monsieur le Premier Ministre, à l’expression de mes respectueuses salutations.
    Nom et signature
