BANGALORE: In this present generation, despite women being confident, prosperous, stronger and more independent, it is still an undeniable fact that womenfolk are still vulnerable and the victims of crime. Until now, for many of the 3.3 billion female occupants of our planet, the advantage of the cyber age never arrived. So, from the consolidated data of the Thompson Reuters Foundation, the World Report 2014 and the Foundation for Sustainable Development, here is the list of most dangerous countries to be a woman, reports The New Economy.

Afghanistan:

Over the past few years, Afghanistan has been a battleground where the place history is filled with nothing but war. Unsurprisingly, this country is one of the most dangerous in the world for women.

In this country, the average Afghan girl will live to only 45–one year less than an Afghan male.
After three decades of war and religion-based tyranny, an overwhelming number of women are illiterate.

Not just this, more than half of all brides are under 16, and one woman dies in childbirth every half hour. Domestic violence is so prevalent that 87 percent of women admit of going through it. However, over 1 million widows are on the streets, often forced into prostitution. Afghanistan is the only country in which the female suicide rate is higher than that of males.
