In Somalia, Rape is a Common Sight: Labeled as Worst Country for Women

The country has brittle laws for women safety owing to which perpetrators roam free without chargeS

Aug 11, 2017: Somalia is voted as the 5th most deadly place for women to inhabit. High maternal mortality rate, frequent rape, female genital mutilation (FGM), and limited access to healthcare facilities for women make Somalia, one of the worst countries for women.

According to the survey conducted by the ‘Human Right Watch’, rape is a common sight in Somalia. Many times, rapists are the men from the police department, which makes it even hard for the victim to raise their voice.

Many women in Somalia live in tents, which are easily accessible by outsiders. There isn’t proper electricity inside the tent which makes it difficult for the women to acknowledge the face of their rapist afterward.

As per the statistics from the United Nation, before 2013, there were 800 cases of sexual violence and rape against women in just six months, mentioned Daily Bhaskar. Although, due to under reportage of such crimes, the actual number is far fetched.

The country has brittle laws for women safety owing to which perpetrators roam free without charges. Men are never prosecuted or sentenced for committing such atrocious act.
