  • Healthcare,
  • Discrimination,
  • Cultural traditions,
  • Sexual violence,
  • Non-sexual violence,
  • Human trafficking.

The United States is the only Western nation in the list of top 10 of the world’s most dangerous countries for women in 2018.

India was previously ranked in the top 5 unsafe countries for women in the world in 2011. This time, it has moved to the top of the list. An Indian state official had this to say about the findings:

India has shown utter disregard and disrespect for women … rape, marital rapes, sexual assault and harassment, female infanticide has gone unabated.

    Rubbish, its a poll based survey, simply a reflection of perceptions, we know for a fact that the world media mostly operated by Zionists is busy in media war destroying the perception of Pakistan in particular and muslims in general and our media ignorantly or for commercial reasons acts as a partner. In Pakistan, people stand up for women to give them their seat on buses, stations, women enjoy separate lines every where, where there is no separate line, they simply walk up to a window and get priority service, nobody complains, its it our culture, respect for women, it will take the west a long time to catchup. Yes there is violence too in the uneducated parts of the society, what else do you expect, if you dont educate your people, all strong classes will exert undue influence on all weak classes, rich vs poor, male vs female, grownups vs children etc.

    We simply publish any survey done around the world abusing ourselves without realizing its a media war going out there, most of their think tanks are paid. I wonder when we shall grow up to run our own surveys or the world countries based on our definition of values and publish the results.

      Saudi Arabia is probably the most safe country in the world for woman. No man has guts to even frown on woman in public.

    Pakistani would be feeling proud that they r on 6th position while India is at top.
