This entire world, unfortunately, is steeped in inequality and is terribly unsafe for women. However, there are some countries that have such poor legislation and law enforcement that violence against women gets a free lease.
Here is a list of the most dangerous countries that women are not safe.
Notorious for its drug abuse and corrupt government orders, this country is hell for women. In 2015 alone, there were around 45000 cases of domestic violence- that too without redressal.
This country has a terrible gender gap in literacy rates. 87% of the female population is not literate and 70-80% of them are forced into early marriages. The most horrifying aspect is that the mortality ratio is 400 in 100,000.
India is one country that does not even want the female population born. It had more than 50 million cases of female infanticide in the last thirty years. Domestic violence and female trafficking are rampant here.
4. The Democratic Republic of Congo
Reports show that Congo has the worst gender-based violence cases. If calculations are correct, there are about 420000 women who are raped every day.
It’s a country with such poor law and order that sexual harassment is an everyday concern. High maternal mortality rates and child marriages imply a lack of basic safety for women.
Forced child marriages are a norm here, and so are public stoning and acid attacks. 90% of women here face domestic violence, and 1000 cases of honor killings happen each year.
Kenya is a fully agricultural based country. The women there don’t earn what they deserve from their work. There is dreadful literacy rate for women and HIV AIDS is rampant because women don’t have a right to exercise consent.
In Brazil, every 15 seconds a woman is sexually abused and a girl murdered every two hours. The right to an abortion is denied unless it is a physically dangerous situation to have a baby. Women can even go to jail for up to 3 years for aborting a fetus.
There are no custody and inheritance rights in Egypt that favor women. Sexual violence is a possibility even for tourists and not just the regular population here.
There have been 4000 cases of disappearance in one year alone in Mexico. The place is notorious for it’s ineffectual legal and police processes to prevent violence against women.
