"A month after the United Nations last summer announced the creation of a new, $500 million-a-year organization to promote equality for women in global affairs, the U.N.'s own investigators revealed that 15 years of 'gender mainstreaming' efforts within the UN Secretariat have been a sweeping and costly failure. ... The evaluation carried out by the U.N. watchdog, the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), looked at 20 of the U.N.’s most important departments and offices. It found glaring deficiencies almost everywhere." (04/12/11)
