  •  Seems to be a worthless treaty. (2+ / 0-)

    It seems the only consequence to signing this treaty is that some committee at the UN gets to start yelling at you if they decide you're not following it.

    Has anyone looked at the list of who has actually ratified it? It includes, for example, Yemen where an 8 year old child died last year from injuries sustained on her "wedding night" with a 40 year old man.

    We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.
