Why you’re lucky to be a woman in the UK
An ordinary Saturday for the average Cosmo reader might go something like this: you wake up in the morning, slip into jeans and a T-shirt, jump into your car and head into town. You meet a group of friends for lunch before heading off later to meet your boyfriend for a drink in a bar. Then you enjoy a cosy night between the sheets…
None of this seems particularly remarkable to us here in the UK. But the shocking truth is that, in various parts of the world, an ordinary day like this would cause a woman to break at least six laws, punishable by imprisonment, whipping or even death.
Yes, British women are still victims of crimes against their sex, from rape to domestic violence. But they are not dismissed or ignored by the government that is there to protect us. And we live in a society where we can protest and make our voices heard.
In many other countries, millions of women face fear on a daily basis. In December 2012, a 23-year-old Indian medical student caught a bus home after a trip to the cinema with a friend in New Delhi. What happened next caused global outpourings of outrage. After taking their bus fare, the driver, his assistant and four men subjected her and her male friend to an horrific ordeal. She was brutally gang-raped, before being assaulted with an iron bar and thrown from the moving vehicle.
Her friend survived being beaten – but, just under two weeks later, this young woman died in hospital of severe organ failure, her promising life snuffed out in the most brutal way possible.
Last September, four men were sentenced to death for the crime. It’s often only when an atrocity is as horrific as this that women find the strength to speak up for their rights. So, in honour of International Women’s Day, Cosmo highlights the plight of those whose right to a free, equal, violence-free life can’t be taken for granted – and how you can help.
1. India: women forced to marry their rapist
More than 24,000 rapes were reported in India in 2011 – over two an hour – and a shocking 94% were perpetrated by men known to the victim. In 2012 more than 600 attacks were reported in New Delhi alone, resulting in just one conviction, compared with a conviction rate of 58% for cases that reach court in the UK.
In 2013, A bill containing harsher punishments for rapists was passed by India’s parliament, yet victims of rape are still often stigmatised, and some are forced to marry their attackers to avoid ‘social shame’. But despite the protests, change will be slow – in a country where six state-level parliamentarians are facing rape charges, and marital rape is legal, women’s rights are often sidelined. This month, new guidelines have been drawn up for treating rape victims in India, but there’s still some way to go.

2. Sudan: 40 lashes for wearing trousers
In 1991 a law was introduced in Sudan that says women who wear ‘obscene’ clothes or commit ‘indecent acts’ in public can be punished with a fine and up to 40 lashes. Because the definitions of ‘indecent’ and ‘obscene’ aren’t specified in the law, it’s since been used to arrest women wearing trousers and socialising with male friends. Polygamy is legal for men, while women face being stoned to death if they commit adultery, and there are no laws against domestic violence.
Forced marriage and trafficking of women for labour, sex and domestic service are also significant problems . And earlier this year, an Ethiopian woman who says she was gang-raped in Sudan was convicted of “indecent acts” – which suggests things won’t be getting better any time soon.

3. Afghanistan: the worst country in the world for women
Although women’s rights in Afghanistan are gradually improving, they’re still a million miles away from what we’re used to in the UK. Since the Taliban was toppled, women have won back some basic rights – such as being allowed to work outside their homes – and in 2009, the Elimination of Violence Against Women law helped authorities prosecute cases of rape and domestic violence. But in November last year, a draft penal code suggested stoning might be brought back as a punishment for adulterers, and everyday violence against women is still rife . Some families even carry out so-called honour killings against their own sisters and daughters when they commit ‘moral crimes’, including adultery or refusing arranged marriages.
It’s also estimated that around 57% of girls marry before the age of 15, often to men far older than them, and 70-80% of marriages are forced. In 2011, Afghanistan was ranked by gender experts as the most dangerous country in the world for women.
What you can do: There are fears that when forces withdraw from the country (Barack Obama has ordered preparations for full withdrawal by the end of the year) , women’s rights will suffer. Amnesty International is keen to make sure this doesn’t happen – lend your support at Amnesty.org.
4. South Africa: 78% of men admit to committing violence against women
Horrifically, in South Africa a woman is more likely to be raped than to learn how to read – a girl born there today has a one in three chance of finishing school, while half will be raped. More than 37% of South African men admit to having committed rape – a third say they don’t feel guilty – but only a small percentage of attacks are reported. Some South African men believe the myth that sex with a virgin cures AIDS – which, along with the ‘virginity testing’ which is carried out in some areas, may be partly responsible for the prevalence of child rape. As many as a quarter of women are in an abusive relationship.

5. Democratic Republic of Congo: the rape capital of the world
In 2011 it was estimated that a staggering 48 women in DR Congo are raped every hour. Labelled ‘the rape capital of the world’, the civil war there means 12% of women have been victims – after which they’re often rejected by their families, perpetrators are often allowed to escape even when found guilty, and little is done to compensate victims. Fistula – a condition where a hole forms between the vagina and the bladder or rectum due to rape or childbirth – is common, leaving women disabled and often abandoned by their families.
With a life expectancy of just 46, women are viewed as the property of their family, and there are no laws against domestic violence. They’re also only allowed to use contraception with their husband’s permission, contributing to the country’s AIDS epidemic – 1.3million adults in the region currently live with HIV/AIDS.

6. Saudi Arabia: women are banned from driving
Men and women are strictly segregated, meaning women struggle to access museums, libraries and even certain public streets. They also need permission from male relatives for most activities, from receiving hospital treatment to leaving their own homes, and are banned from driving.
There’s no legal minimum age for marriage in Saudi, which means it’s legal to marry a baby of just an hour old – cases of girls as young as eight married to 60-year-old men have been reported. Trafficking, for prostitution and domestic service, is widespread. Domestic violence and rape are rarely reported for fear of bringing ‘shame’ on a victim’s family – although in September, a draft law criminalised domestic abuse, which had previously been legal, which is a step in the right direction.

7. Pakistan – 150 acid attacks a year
In July 2012, Farida Afridi, 25, was gunned down and killed by two men on motorcycles. Her crime? To organise seminars on female empowerment. This depressing story is indicative of how far women’s rights in Pakistan have yet to come. Domestic violence is rife, and around reported 150 acid attacks took place in 2011 – although the true number is likely to be higher. Women in rural areas especially suffer the worst inequality, and in the past few years the country has seen a rise in honour killings, forced marriages and rape – just a few of the 9,000 reported crimes committed against women every year.To mark International Women’s Day this Wednesday, we’re looking at what it’s like to be a woman in one of the less fortunate countries of the world… ]]>
