When women need to count their blessings consider the following:
DangerPoll - TrustLaw

Quote:
From rape and domestic violence to lack of healthcare and education, millions of women experience daily peril, but nowhere more than in the five countries a TrustLaw Women expert poll identifies as the world's most dangerous countries to be female in 2011: Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, India and Somalia.

So, because the treatment of women is worse in other places we should sit down, shut up and accept whatever is thrown at us in the US?

It doesn't work that way.

I would have thought China would be in the top five but then I realized that China's one child policy and strong bias towards males means that a lot of potential females never make it to womanhood so the matter is moot.

Well, considering your posting history (which, I usually do when commenting) and the fact that you said "When women need to count their blessings consider the following"

I assumed you meant that women here in the US need to quit complaining about how 'badly' they're treated when there are women suffering in other parts of the world. You've complained ad nauseam about 'feminazis' and the like, so I'd say it was a fair assumption.

I dont need to count my blessings. I make my own future....this is more propaganda.

Work for legal aid and get out in the world OP . If you ever lived in a major city ( or traveled more than 100 miles out of your little hometown) its difficult to be a single profl woman anywhere...

or if they want to be subjugated they can follow the GOP and "be submissive" kinda like psycho pedophile Warren Jeffs preaching- "be sweet and submissive".

How disgraceful and reactionary you people try to oppress women voters. This is 2011. Visit So. Florida and see how they will listen to your white supremacist fear mongering (sarc). It ISNT WORKING. You have no clue how to appeal to working women professionals.

Ho sick and sad OP thinks women voters in US who have degrees and careers will be swayed by garbage divisive propaganda.

Aside from your deep personal feelings about an anonymous poster, any thoughts on the article itself?

You did join the discussion voluntarily, I presume.

Women are treated poorly everywhere, it is a matter of degree. We are fortunate here, however, to at least have laws to protect women. Not so for much of the world's pits. So counting "blessings" is in order for us here relatively speaking. Add to that people are treated poorly by each other the world over, is the human condition. At least the societal mores in the Western world have tried to remedy that, and now with the loss of those values, we are becoming more third world sadly. Still we are a beacon comparatively to the rest of the dark globe.

Is it just me or are the left wingers flying off the edge here on this one. The OP presents two articles from one of the the most trusted and respected World Wide news organizations (NOT FOX by the way) and the Feminazis go frigging ape ****.


What is wrong with some of you people?

This thread is about the oppressive abuse and murder of WOMEN in the 21st century no less from so very bassackward countries. Why in the hell would you deride the the OP for presenting this information?
