What: US Now in Top Ten List of Most Dangerous Country for Women

The United States has cracked into the top 10 of an unfortunate list. We are now the 10th most dangerous country for women, according to "experts" from the Thompson Reuters Foundation.

The United States has been ranked for the first time among the ten nations deemed to be the most dangerous for women by experts in the field. A survey by the Thompson Reuters Foundation of about 550 experts in women's issues around the globe labelled the U.S. the 10th most dangerous nation in terms of the risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.

Reuters said the U.S. placement on the dubious list was down largely to the #MeToo and Time's Up campaigns increasing awareness of sexual violence and intimidation of women in the U.S. in the wake of the criminal allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. (CBS News)

 Here's the company we're keeping.

As expected, social media users didn't exactly agree with these "experts." To put the U.S. on par with countries with such abysmal human rights records is ridiculous, they argue. They also noted that the survey left out some more obvious countries.
