Worst Place (Country) To Be A Woman
Following on from a thread that was hijacked, can't recall which one, anyway "The Global Gender Gap Report 2013" has just come out (World Economic Forum), and the biggest inequality is as follows - the bottom 10. (Page 18 on the link if you want to see the whole list - it's a pdf).

136 Yemen
135 Pakistan
134 Chad
133 Syria
132 Mauritania
130 Ivory Coast
129 Iran
128 Morocco
127 Mali
126 Saudi

and some others

125 Egypt
123 Lebanon (That surprised me)
122 Oman
116 Kuwait
115 Qatar
112 Bahrain
109 UAE

18 UK

So the bottom 10 are all Islamic Countries - but Islam is good for women isn't it.

I beg to differ :D

and before you jump to the obvious conclusion, her own words at the end of the clip are 'it is love, ofcourse it is love, we used to work together, and then fell in love,
as long as he can take care of me and keep me happy, I dont mind what he looks like'

so there you go :)
