TIME magazine, hugely influential across the world, has highlighted the plight of women, who continue to suffer disproportionately across the world. They investigated conditions for women across the world and found that, whilst there has been a moderate improvement over the last 20 years, many areas see women as victims. Following the information found by Foreign Policy magazine, the article explores nine factors, including physical security, maternal mortality, government participation and educational disparity, and found Afghanistan to be the worst place in the world to live as a woman.
According to the article, 'One of the most striking findings, was that of sex trafficking. According to Foreign Policy‘s map, it appears that nearly 75% of the world has lax trafficking laws. Almost all of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia fall into one of three categories: "Trafficking is illegal but still practiced,” "Trafficking is limitedly illegal but is still practiced,” or "Trafficking is not illegal and is commonly practiced.”'
