The National Commission for Women on Tuesday rejected the survey that rated India as the world’s most dangerous country for women, and said the countries that have been ranked after India have women who are not even allowed to speak in public.

NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma rejected the survey report, claiming that the sample size was small and could not be representative of the whole country. “For a nation as big as India, the sample size of the survey is not representative of the country as a whole,” she said.

“Women are very aware in India of issues and there is no way that we could be ranked number one in such a survey. The countries that have been ranked after India have women who are not even allowed to speak in public,” Ms. Sharma said.
