The Democratic Republic of Congo:

A Central African country, the Democratic Republic of Congo experiences one of the poorest forms of the human rights and as such an unsafe place for women to survive. In the eastern Congo, a war that claimed more than 3 million lives has affected many women on the front line.

Rapes are so brutal and frequent that UN investigators have called them unprecedented. Many women die; others are infected with HIV and left to look after children alone. As the women frequently wandered from one place to another in search for food and water, it exposes them to yet more violence. Without money, transport or connections, they have no way to escape.

Pakistan:

A South Asian Muslim nation, Pakistan comes up in the list of the most dangerous countries for women. In some part of this country, women are even gang-raped as punishment for men's crimes. On top of this, honour killing is more widespread, and a renewed wave of religious extremism is targeting female politicians, human rights workers and lawyers too. Some of the worst atrocities towards women also include child and forced marriage, acid attacks and punishment by stoning. As per Pakistan’s Human Rights Commission, over 1,000 girls and women are the victims of ‘honour killings’ every year, and 90 percent is a victim of domestic violence.
