The United National raised eyebrows on Monday after it tweeted that the coronavirus pandemic has somehow demonstrated that the world is dominated by men, whose “culture … damages everyone.”
The tweet was a quote from Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, who made the remarks at a town hall with Young Women from Civil Society Organizations in late August.
“The pandemic is only demonstrating what we all know: that millennia of patriarchy have resulted in a male-dominated world with a male-dominated culture which damages everyone – women, men, girls and boys,” Guterres said at the town hall.
He claimed the pandemic was “deepening existing inequalities, including gender inequality.”
