With rapes happening every five minutes, murders of women every week, and harassment at work, on the tube, even in schoools and univiversities... I don't think the so-called 'developed', societies are much better... maybe the harassment is more suble... less blatant, you. know. Only a few weeks ago, a young woman who began a website to record harassment of schoolgirls (which she had suffered while at school) has received thousands of reports, with students at Universities in the UK were also confiding their awful experiences.
