Linda Thomas Greenfield, the United States Permanent Representative to the UN who presented the resolution to the council, said that Iranian women, girls and the Iranian people have come together to stand by the Iranian people, and that after the death of Mahsa Amini, tens of thousands of Iranians have said enough is enough.

The Iranian government responded with brutality and violence. The government and security forces shot and killed civilians. They tortured the protesters. They executed the detainees. But Iran. She still wants to be on this women’s commission,” she said.

Greenfield, describing Iran’s presence in the UN Commission on the Status of Women as a “blot,” said: “Iran’s membership directly undermines the work of the commission. Iran’s membership in this commission was a stain on our authority. Today we have removed this black mark.”
