India is the worst place for women The best is Canada. Italian eighth


India has had a female head of government in 1966. Today two of the most important political figures of the country are women: President Pratibha Patil, and the leader of main opposition party, the Italian (source) Sonia Gandhi. India, even today, is the worst place to be born women.
THE CLASS - These are the findings from a study of the Thomson Reuters Foundation TrustLaw on the G20, built between 370 specialists in gender issues and made ​​public in advance of the G20 program in Mexico on 18 and 19 June.Instead it is the best country to Canada, followed by Germany, Great Britain, Australia and France. At the bottom of the 20 most industrialized nations are Mexico, South Africa, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and, of course, India. Italy is about halfway through and at the eighth position
ITALY - One of the critical issues of our country TrustLaw mentions access to employment, inequality and abuse in the family. Italian women spend on housework in three hours more per day than men. And one million two hundred thousand women, reported by ISTAT in 2009, were victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. The report cites Daniela Colombo of the Italian Association for Women in Development: "Despite the enormous progress in the last 40 years, women are still discriminated against at work: they have lower rates of employment, lower wages, little access to managerial roles. And they are victims of gender violence: there was an increase of femmincidi 'murder based on gender. Nothing, however, compared with the abuse and discrimination suffered by the Indians.
MISCARRIAGES AND KILLINGS - The Indian subcontinent is a vast difference between the city and the most developed areas and rural areas, especially the North, where gender inequalities are more pronounced for the weight of traditional roles. Much of the population lives in these regions."It's a miracle that a woman will survive. Even before birth was unlikely to be aborted, due to widespread obsession of having sons - says Shemeer Padinzjharedil of Mpas4aid.com, a site that documents the crimes against women -. If that happens, it runs the risk of domestic abuse, being raped, forced to marry a child or killed for dowry. " According to one study, "Lancet," in the last 30 years in India have been subjected to selective abortion of 12 million girls. And a woman is killed every hour for possession of her dowry (the data are for 2010 by the National Indian crime statistics). In many cases the victims are covered with kerosene used in the kitchens of the poorest homes and burned alive: their deaths are passed off as accidents at home.45% of Indian, moreover, is forced to marry before 18 years of age. And 51% of men and 54% of women justify the fact that a husband can beat his wife.
OTHER STATISTICS - TrustLaw The study is based on expert assessments. But the UN statistics bear this out: according to the index of gender inequality (Gender Inequality Index) Indonesia, India and Saudi Arabia are the countries which discriminate against women more. "India is very poor, very rich Saudi Arabia. But they have one thing in common: unless you have other privileges, you expect a very different future if you have two X chromosomes, or at least one Y chromosome, "says Nicholas Kristof, author of" The other half of the sky: how to transform the 'oppression into opportunities for women.
