Reuters Poll: U.S. Ranked ‘Top Ten Most Dangerous For Women’ Alongside Congo, Saudi Arabia, Somalia

Published

A recent Reuters survey has placed the United States in the same category as several third-world countries in terms of “dangerousness for women.”

“War-torn Afghanistan and Syria ranked second and third in the Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of about 550 experts on women’s issues, followed by Somalia and Saudi Arabia,” says a Reuters report on the survey.

India was ranked as the most dangerous country in the world for women.

“The only Western nation in the top 10 was the United States, which ranked joint third when respondents were asked where women were most at risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex,” according to the report.

“People want to think income means you’re protected from misogyny, and sadly that’s not the case,” said Cindy Southworth, Executive Vice President of the National Network to End Domestic Violence. “We are going to look back and see this as a very powerful tipping point … We’re blowing the lid off and saying ‘#Metoo and Time’s Up’.”

There is no question that all violence against women is unacceptable. But ranking the United States among such nations in level of “dangerousness” is pure delusion.

For comparison purposes, the United States is ranked only three spots higher than the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where 48 women are raped every hour, 12 percent of women will experience rape in their lifetime, and rape is used as a weapon of war.

“There have been many reports and witness accounts of the gang rape of young girls and elderly women by armed militia, and also accounts of men being raped,” says a Guardian report on the subject.

India was ranked at the top of the list for practices like “forced marriage, stoning and female infanticide,” none of which occur in the United States.

Syria ranked third on the list due to its ongoing seven-year war.

“There are so many dangers for girls and women,” said Maria Al Abdeh, executive director of Women Now For Development, which supports women’s centers in Syria. “There is sexual violence by government forces. Domestic violence and child marriage are increasing and more women are dying in childbirth. The tragedy is nowhere near an end.”

Saudi Arabia ranked fifth. Women are still not allowed to have driver’s licenses there, and though a recent law was passed allowing women to drive, they will be required to be accompanied by a male counterpart when the law goes into effect.

“One of the worst laws that prevent women from having equal opportunities is guardianship – because every woman is subjected to a male guardian. She cannot get a passport, cannot travel, sometimes she cannot work,” said Ahlam Akram, founder of British Arabs Supporting Universal Women’s Rights.

Placing “harassment” and “misogyny” in America, neither of which should be tolerated, on the same moral level as rape, stoning, and forced marriage is a dishonest stretch of epic proportion.

Campaign 2020

University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party

From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats

Published

Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.

Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.

Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.

The remaining 2.4 percent of contributions went to Republican causes. These included WinRed, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Republican National Committee.

To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.

Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.

Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.

This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.

Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.

Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
