Experts Say U.S. Among 10 Most Dangerous Nations For Women
The Thomson Reuters Foundation: Did you know the US is one of the ten most dangerous countries in the world to be a woman? This is just another leftist attempt to take a jab at America.
Missing from the list are Sierra Leone, the Central African Republic, Guinea-Bissau, Lesotho, Swaziland, Angola, Chad, Mali, Burundi, Cameroon, Iraq, Iran, Sudan Brunei, Qatar, Columbia, China, North Korea, and Mozambique. Just to name a few!
What could the problem be? That seems completely free of bias 🙄🧐 pic.twitter.com/TLUaAPYXWg

The United States has been ranked for the first time among the 10 nations deemed to be the most dangerous for women by experts in the field. A survey by the Thomson Reuters Foundation of about 550 experts in women’s issues around the globe labeled the U.S. the 10th most dangerous nation in terms of the risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.
The foundation said the U.S. placement on the dubious list was down largely to the #MeToo and Time’s Up campaigns increasing awareness of sexual violence and intimidation of women in the U.S. in the wake of the criminal allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
“People want to think income means you’re protected from misogyny, and sadly that’s not the case,” Cindy Southworth, of the Washington-based National Network to End Domestic Violence, told the foundation. “We are going to look back and see this as a very powerful tipping point… We’re blowing the lid off and saying ‘#Metoo and Time’s Up’.”[…]
Most of the other countries in the top-10 determined by the foundation’s survey are countries with ongoing military conflicts or insurgencies, or where long-held religious and political views have kept women on an unequal footing in terms of law enforcement and treatment in society generally. More
Women in the U.S., as a class, are among the freest, most privileged, and least oppressed human beings to ever walk on this planet.
But yes, somehow it’s more dangerous for us here than in China (forced abortions), North Korea (where it’s…North Korea), and Latin America (1/2)

In other words, the rankings were based on the feelings of psuedo-experts, and not on reasonable analysis of data.
Sounds about par for the course. https://t.co/IbP5Fz81O3
