    Afghanistan the worst place to be a woman.

    AFGHANISTAN has been rated the worst country in the world to be a woman because of out-of-control violence, poor healthcare and extreme poverty.

    The Democratic Republic of Congo comes a close second because of the number of rapes there - more than 1000 every day.
    Pakistan, India and Somalia came next in the survey, which measured threats to women ranging from domestic violence and discrimination to genital mutilation and sex trafficking.
    Read the full survey here
    India's appearance on the list is surprising given its aspirations to be a first world state.
    The poll found that about "90 per cent of trafficking took place within the country and that there were some 3 million prostitutes, of which about 40 per cent were children".


    Pakistan came under fire for its high rates of honour killings and child marriages.
    The survey found that militia groups and soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo targeted all ages, including girls as young as three and elderly women.
    "They are gang raped, raped with bayonets and some have guns shot into their vaginas," the survey says.
    Afghanistan was rated the worst because of high mortality rates, limited access to doctors and a "near total lack of economic rights" in addition to the continuing war there, NATO airstrikes and dangerous cultural practices.
    The poll was carried out by Thomson Reuters Foundation to mark the launch of its website TrustLaw Woman, which aims to provide free legal advice for women's groups around the globe.
    More than 200 experts from five continents were asked to rank countries according to six risks: health threats, sexual violence, non-sexual violence, cultural or religious factors, lack of access to resources and trafficking.

    What a disgraceful world we live in.

    I read that when under Taliban rule that Afghan women weren't allowed to smile in public.

    let's hope our space alien friends read that, and wipe that part of the world for the big reboot in 2012

    I read somewhere that in Africa it's widely believed that sex with a virgin cures AIDS. So, guess what they do?

    I was half-heartedly involved in a conversation recently where it was said that the African region is the home to the "birth of civilisation", another person piped up and said they were wrong, it was actually the Middle East that fly's the flag of being "the birth of civilisation".

    What gets me is, if these two shithole regions of the world ARE the original "birth of civilisation" then why the fvck has it taken so long for them to get their shit together.

    Then they changed it to sex with infants and upon being told that this was wrong changed it to sex with the elderly...and guess what they're doing.

    I know it's there 'culture' (fucking ridiuclous) but tribes, fucking every single one, should be banned.

    They haven't moved on much since birth, obviously. The origin of man is still being debated though anyway.

    Seems quite obvious to me that the return of the British Empire is needed, these places are just not capable of governing themselves.

    Well obviously we didn't get to rule the whole world and the countries that never got to experience British rule are worse off for it.

    you forgot Laos, and indirectly Thailand, which has always been friendly with the French

    like I said, we would get the best deal

    I think that's the nicest description of Ethnic Cleansing ever.

    ^ It's what should happen though. The UN should go around the world telling all these bone sporting cavemen to grow up.

    Now I know it's all fashionable to get agitated about them muzzie 'women', and their lack of rights.


    Thing is, if you want rights, freedom etc. you'd better be prepared to fight for it yourself. Check up on some human history. That's the reality of life. Up to them to get over their fear and stand up for themselves. Sure it won't be easy to stand up to weak muzzie 'men', the weak tends to go somewhat psycho when challenged - basically because of fear - but them's the breaks in life.


    Else shutup and live with it, as well as the derision of the rest of the world.

    I work in Afghanistan and I can pretty much support that statement. Rape could be much worst for them but since the Taliban seem to like underage boys more at least they are spared the entire of their depravity. What a jacked-up, backwards place.
