India ranked world’s most dangerous country for women in recent study; Afghanistan, Syria and Somalia complete top 4. In a study by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, India has been named the world’s most dangerous country for women.Security is the right of every individual. We all need security. It is so unfair if any individual is scared all the time. The safety of females is a huge issue across the world. Every day, we hear cases of women falling victim to different gruesome acts.
“Violence against women in India has caused national and international outrage and protests since the 2012 gangrape and murder of a student on a bus in New Delhi,” the report said.
On why it ranked India the worst, Thomson Reuters said the world’s second-most populous country rated poorly on three main fronts — risks of sexual violence and harassment, dangers from cultural, tribal and traditional practices and human trafficking, including forced labour, sex slavery and domestic servitude.
