The finding comes from the first international poll on how women fare in cities with over 10 million people.

The survey was conducted in 19 megacities where experts on women's issues were asked about how well women were protected from sexual violence.

The poll ranked London as the megacity most friendly to women, followed by Tokyo and Paris.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said women were now leading in every level of society in London, including public service, the arts, business and politics.
