We all get brain washed by the news. Iran has some of the nicest people, remember that it's not just bad in Iran. There is bad things happening everywhere

Basically Saudi Arabia but worse because there is no American products like their movies and their food which is good

I'm an Iranian girl and I don't really wear Chad or, my clothes are not long and I always have a lot of my hair not covered when going out.
It's not sexist just because you have to cover certain parts of your body...

It's absolutely sexist! Y'all need to read about feminism and see how pathetically we live in a sexist country

Welcome to dickhead, I mean cockface central. Where men are colossal dickheads. If the beatimg wife thing is true, all men who do so should be permanently improsoned, or executed brutally if it involves murder. (Written by a man who knows sexism is wrong)

I feel sad for their women. Hope it will get better

This is by far the worst

I am a sixteen year old girl from Pakistan and NEVER in my life have I EVER experienced any form of degradation, molestation or even cat calls from a male in my country. They usually keep their eyes averted from women. I receive quality education and have always been encouraged to do so.
No, it's not legal to beat your wife in Pakistan.
No, I'm not a terrorist.
Yes their are various areas of Pakistan that are deprived of education, food,water and are full of injustice and sexism. But we're working on stopping that, so please. These insults are the last thing we need.

India it is the most sexist country in the history of the world Ghandi Is Sexist And Because Without Ghandi India wouldn't Existed So Ghandi=India So Sexist=India. Quick Maths

ACTUALLY, they're not as sexist as you think.
Author, go educate yourself.
Ok yes, in the PAST, India was quite sexist.
But India is developing really fast. 90% of the sexist laws that existed are gone. All parts of the country has seen how important each gender is in terms of their country. More and more Indian people are getting educated and learning the importance of gender equality. In terms of the 21st Century, India shouldn't be 6th on this list. More lower down.

7 United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states.

Considering all the recent antiabortion laws being passed it is like old white men wanting to control what women can and can't do with their own bodies.

44 countries have a lower gender pay gap.
New Zealand allowed women to vote in 1893, 27 years before the US.
About 61+ countries have had a democratically elected female LEADER (president, prime minister, chancellor) before America. And they still don't have one.
I don't think the US is the most sexist country. But it is one of the most for the first world. I know you're Americans probably don't know anything about the rest of the world, especially the person who said they're "the least" sexist.
Better countries for gender equality than the US (just naming some): The UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Canada, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Finland, Brazil etc.
The US ranks behind. I'd say it's the most sexist FIRST world country. Obviously Saudi Arabia and other countries are much worse, much they're not first world. - markusw0207

Whoever added this needs to educate themselves. Men and women already have equal rights in America. This doesn't deserve to be included on a list with countries where women have to wear hijabs in public just because you can't go out topless. - 00Squidward

So your logic is, because other women have it worse, you should just accept it? I'm a Saudi woman and what you just said is exactly what Saudi men tell me.."Afghanistan is worse, be quiet!
