This is infuriating. Was every woman in the UK unavailable?

All women and girls? ......I can't put on here what I want to say...but FFS...when will they learn...do charities etc do any due diligence? This person is not representative of women and girls....even if we take away the obvious ( sitting on my hands at the moment)

FFFS.

How can u talk about rape for example when talking about your vagina is exclusionary.

Bergdorf is the last person on earth to support women's and girls' rights. Bergdorf of "you can't centre your reproductive issues at the Women's March because it makes trans people feel excluded" fame.

It's a preposterous decision.

I'd probably get banned from this forum if I responded to this honestly.

Makes a mockery of what women around the world experience from cradle to grave.

SarahTancredi Tue 03-Dec-19 10:10:28

Just Google "women killed in 2019"

Your welcome...

Me too.

TheProdigalKittensReturn Tue 03-Dec-19 10:11:25

On what grounds? What has Bergdorf done historically that would make this make sense as an appointment?

TiredofthisBS Tue 03-Dec-19 10:11:50

Same @NonnyMouse1337 Same.

I had a warning because I said something truthful about Ms Bergdorf.

TiredofthisBS Tue 03-Dec-19 10:12:37

MB can not and will not ever represent me.

Ereshkigal Tue 03-Dec-19 10:13:50

Why does MB, specifically, keep getting these positions? Especially as in every other instance, MB was later removed from the post due to controversial things MB had said in the past?

MB is not particularly insightful about anything. It's weird.

I doubt that the UN have looked into their background and historical comments made. It seems like virtue signalling of the highest order.

Whisper it softly, but this may not be the case:

Such a hero for women. Except the lesbians, and the white ones. And the ones with vaginas.

Seems official.

MockersFactCheckMN Tue 03-Dec-19 10:35:28

Supporting a particular initiative. Most certainly not appointed a UN advocate or goodwill ambassador.

Imnobody4 Tue 03-Dec-19 10:39:01

Is this an actual position or just more self publicity? Can't find any 'announcement' from U.N. Women UK. It's not like she's actually intending to do anything other than yet another glamour pose on Twitter.
I find it quite desperate.

Hmmmmm. It's a toughie.
