India has got a bad name for treatment of women. Girls in general are considered at birth a bad omen. Many women are killed during pregnancies, because girls are considered a burden on the family whereas boys are thought of as bearers of glad tidings. According to one estimate 4 million unborn girls were killed during the last 20 years. Those whose survive are married off in their teenage years, according to a UNICEF report. This is happening in the cities as well as villages. All over the world girls are married off at early age 40% of those live in India. Crime rate is the highest against women. Women who don’t bring enough dowry they are physically abused or commit suicide. Young girls are kidnapped and sold in the sex-market for exploitation or made to work as servants in the houses. In Mumbai over 150,000 women are forced to sell their bodies to survive. At home girls are given less food than boys. Women who die during pregnancies, India is on top of the list. According to UN Human Development report 88% pregnant women have anemia (lack of red blood cells).
Like many countries in Nigeria face daily punishments from their husbands. They face the worst kind of punishments and there is no one to help them. During pregnancies they are not provided medical help. Nigeria is facing food shortage, so some men hide the food and women cannot feed their children. Some men are so daring they sell food they receive; hence institutions like UNICEF are now giving food to women directly. Sexual exploitation is rampant. Women who have more than one husbands, they can kick them out for any trivial matter. If a women goes to police station to complain, she is told you are a women of bad character, you deserve what you got. Family members do not support such women who are mistreated or abused by their husbands. Girls who are married by their parents, seldom tell their parents of any domestic abuse.
