A shocking discovery reported by CBS News recently claims that, according to experts, the U.S. is among the 10 most dangerous countries for women of the 193 nations that make up the United Nations.
The experts they got this startling information from are from the Thomson Reuters Foundation, according to CBS. Also disturbing was the list of Third World countries the U.S. was ranked alongside in the top 10:
5. Saudi Arabia
7. Democratic Republic of Congo
10. United States
In fact, America is the only developed nation on that list.
But what did experts base their abysmal ranking of the U.S. off of? The experts scored the nations they felt were the "most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of health care, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking."
Brittany Hughes, who hosts “Reality Check” and is the managing editor for MRCTV, disagrees. A lot.
“We are ranked right alongside human rights abusers like Saudi Arabia, Syria, Afghanistan, India, and Somalia. And get this — North Korea, Iran, and China didn't even make the list,” Hughes pointed out, according to the Daily Wire. “And funny enough, the same people whining about how dangerous the U.S. is for women are the same ones who want to strip women of their Second Amendment right to bear arms.”
She spoke about the freedom women in the U.S. enjoy while rape, domestic violence, and female mutilation are very common in a number of African countries. She also pointed out why it’s so bewildering that the U.S. got ranked more dangerous for women than Iran.
“There, women have to get their husband's permission in order to leave the country, and women are required to wear headscarves in public,” Hughes pointed out. “More than 30 Iranian women have been arrested since the end of December for removing their veils in protest. One was sentenced to two years in prison.”
She pointed out how it’s common for women in Middle East countries to be stoned for having sexual relations outside marriage. Human trafficking is common in southeast Asia. Abortion is mandatory in China.
“Latin America is still home to 14 of the 25 countries with the highest rates of femicide in the world,” Hughes continued, pointing out that no Latin American country is on the top 10 list. “The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean reports that on average, 12 women are murdered every day in Latin America.”
So why are these “experts” so willing to paint America — the freest society on earth — as one of the very worst countries in the world to live in as a woman? Hughes called their report a “handy progressive narrative” unsupported by facts.
