The heads of state from 85 nations, joined by 22 former world leaders, recently endorsed a U.N. plan to ensure every woman's right to education and healthcare, to freedom from sexual assault and the right to choose whether or not she will have children.
Of course, we know what such resolutions mean fine words on a piece of paper almost immediately filed away and soon forgotten.
But one thing was significant about this resolution Bush, representing the United States, refused to sign.
Parroting words about morality and promiscuity, Bush put himself in the camp of those countries and religions that openly treat women as sexual slaves and household servants demonstrating just what his "morality" stands for.
