Unfotunately, there is still plenty material to construct a list of 12 countries with highest rape crime statistics in 2018 . Even though the year hasn’t finished yet, there are enough indicators showing which countries are continuing to have issues and should be avoided by women and girls.
Rape crime is a ghastly act. It’s about violating someone’s body in one of the worst ways possible. What is more, victims have a hard time overcoming the humiliating incident. Hardly does anyone feel so ashamed, powerless and abused at the same time. Apart from psychological consequences, one of the worst scenarios is for a victim to remain pregnant. Even worse, in some countries, abortion is not an option, even if the pregnancy occurred without the consent of a girl or a woman. To fully realize how horrible the situation is, you should bear in mind that in such countries the law is the same for all victims, regardless of their age. As a consequence, a lot of teens (or even younger girls(!)), died during giving birth since their bodies aren’t fully developed to endure the giving birth process.
However, don’t be fooled that only poor and undeveloped countries are making the list. On the contrary, the very first place belongs to a country which is known to be highly desirable for life and it’s famous for its standard of living. The list is a combination of tendencies in the previous years and most recent information. If a country has recently taken some steps to tackle rape crime, it was a sign of safety. Similarly, if the country is proclaimed as unsafe or 2017 showed again a rising number of rapes, the country is certain to continue with this alarming trend.
Finally, let’s see which destinations you should give a second thought if you’re a female, i.e. 12 countries with highest rape crime statistics in 2018.
