Which country is the most dangerous place in the world for women?

Answer: India


Business Insider – “The “most dangerous” list was compiled by the Thomson Reuters Foundation after surveying 550 experts in women’s issues. The survey consisted of six different categories: healthcare, discrimination, cultural traditions, sexual violence, non-sexual violence, and human trafficking. India was listed as the world’s most dangerous place for women, citing sexual violence against women, human trafficking, forced marriage, sexual slavery, and other abuses like acid attacks, female genital mutilation, and child marriage.”

The reason this report got so much attention is because it was the first time the United States cracked the top 10. According to the 500 experts mentioned above, “America is now considered “most dangerous” for women because of the revelations that came out of the #MeToo movement

According to CBS News Cindy Southworth, from the National Network to End Domestic Violence said, “People want to think income means you’re protected from misogyny, and sadly that’s not the case.”
