India Worst Country for Women Among the G20 Nations

June 2012

A new poll, conducted by Trust Law  ranked the 20 countries that form the G20 (the 20 major economies of the world) to determine which of them were the best and the worst in terms of gender equity. The rankings were based on six different categories. These were:1. Quality of health 2. Freedom from violence 3. Political participation 4. Workplace opportunities
5. Access to resources (i.e. education, property rights) 6. Freedom from trafficking and slavery.

India was rated as the worst country for women, ranking worse than Saudi Arabia.  Child marriage, foeticide and infanticide, sexual trafficking, domestic slave labour, domestic violence and high maternal mortality all make India worst of the G20.  More here
