Poll says Afghanistan 'most dangerous' for women
Afghanistan is the most dangerous country for women, an international poll of experts on gender issues says.
High levels of violence, poor healthcare and poverty make Afghanistan the worst place for women, the study by the Thomson-Reuters Foundation says.
The survey places the Democratic Republic of Congo and Pakistan in second and third positions, BBC reported.
India is rated the fourth most dangerous country due to high levels of female foeticide and sex trafficking.
Somalia ranked fifth in the survey.
