In a highly scientific ratings, akin to their own ‘survey’, Thomson Reuters Foundation one of the worse rated on Facebook

The ratings of Thomson Reuters Foundation on social networking site Facebook has dipped to 1.6 (when we last checked) after perception experts felt Thomson Reuters Foundation is nothing short of yellow journalism.

Facebook ratings of Thomson Reuters Foundation

The Thomson Reuters Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Thomson Reuters conducted a survey to find out which of the 19 (world’s biggest megacities as ranked by the United Nations) cities are safe for women – and which need to do more to ensure women are not at risk of sexual violence and harassment and harmful cultural practices and have access to healthcare, finance, and education. In the said survey, India fared as the most dangerous country for women. The Ministry of Women and Child Development (WCD) refuted the poll in a statement and even raised questions regarding the qualifications of the ‘experts’ who were interviewed for the said survey.

The social media experts, who believed Thomson Reuters’ survey was flawed, took to Facebook to voice our their views. Interestingly, they did not keep their identities hidden, unlike the experts Reuters consulted.

Expert reviewing Thomson Reuters Foundation

However, some of the experts reviewing the foundation were even armed with facts and figures, unlike the ‘experts’ referred to by Reuters.

Thomson Reuters getting taste of its own medicine.

While there is no denying about crimes against women taking place in India, where almost every woman has experienced harassment of some form or other, the survey seems way too subjective to be a fair representation of India’s safety as compared to other countries.
