.- The Obama administration has endorsed a proposal to create a new U.N. “super agency” to advance extremist feminist ideology, the Population Research Institute (PRI) says. The organization warns the agency could engage in “cultural imperialism” in service to radical causes.

The proposed agency is supported by a consortium of feminist organizations called the Gender Equality Architecture Reform Campaign (GEAR). The proposal came at the New York meeting of the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women. The Obama administration and the European Union immediately seconded the proposal, which appears to have a good chance at passage.

The existing multiple low-level U.N. offices and commissions have long discontented feminists, according to PRI.

The new agency would create one agency from four existing entities: the Office of the Special Adviser on Gender Issues and Advancement of Women, the Division for the Advancement of Women, the United Nations Development Fund for Women and the United Nations International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women.

PRI explains that the Division for the Advancement of Women has a universal U.N. mandate that would then serve the new bureaucracy. The proposed organization would be headed by a U.N. Under-Secretary General, who would report directly to the U.N. Secretary General.

The draft proposal urges the establishment of the agency before the end of the current session of the General Assembly, advocating it be dedicated to “gender equality” and the “empowerment of women.”

PRI says such concepts have been used to justify the admonishing of Belarus for celebrating Mother’s Day and the chastising of Denmark for having too few female generals in the ranks of its military.

Radical feminists reportedly believe that such an agency would give them access to both the money and power their need to advance their agenda.

GEAR representative Charlotte Bunch said a billion dollars is needed for the agency to be effective on the ground level. She said this funding would be “catalytic” and necessary only to launch the organization.

PRI president Steven Mosher said the pro-life, pro-family movement should “absolutely oppose” the creation of the agency. He said its “radical feminist goals” would undermine marriage and weaken the family.

"What is being proposed is a very powerful agency with a global mandate to restructure relations between the sexes. If the past is any indicator, it will be used to impose the lifestyle of Manhattan and Hollywood feminists on family-centered countries and cultures. It is cultural imperialism at its worst," Mosher said.
