Istanbul ranked as the 10th worst megacity for women and the sixth worst when it came to women at risk of sexual violence and harassment, according to the first international experts’ poll on how women fare in cities with over 10 million people.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation survey asked experts in women’s issues in 19 megacities how well women are protected from sexual violence and oppressive practices, as well as whether they have access to good healthcare, finance and education.

Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city with an estimated population of 14.4 million, ranked as the 13th worst megacity when it came to protection from oppressive practices “including female genital mutilation, early marriage, forced marriage and female infanticide,” the survey stated.
