  3. 3. Why This discussion? • India has made enormous progress in every sphere .Yet ,Indian mentality towards a girl child hasn’t changed much. • India’s child sex ratio (CSR) has been steadily declining for decades and, according to the Census of 2011, has reached 914 girls for every 1,000 boys (0 to 6 years). • In India, there are over 200 million illiterate women and 75 million malnourished children of which 75% are girls .
  4. 4. Reasons  1.Menace of dowry  2.Fear of loss of face in local community  3.Desire to keep the wealth with in the family, through sons  4.Fear of dependence of the girl on the family, for life  5.Attempt to control family size  6.Wish to appease Gods in times of crisis
  5. 5. Female Foeticide We think female foeticide usually happens in illiterate and poor families .But think again, because we are wrong .A recent survey revealed that Delhi ,the national capital of India which houses wealthy and highly educated people has only 870 girls per every 1000 males which proves that even the elite class is biased in its preference.
  6. 6. Is it Fate to women? Tradition such as Sati, Jauhar, Devadasi and Child marriage have been banned but still found in most parts of India – Sati: Widow was immolated alive on her husband funeral pyre – Jauhar: Voluntary immolative of all wives and daughter of defeated warriors – Purdah: Purdah is the practice among some communities of requiring women to cover their bodies so as to cover their skin and conceal their form. – Devadasis: Devadasi is a religious practice in some parts of southern India, in which women are "married" to a deity or temple.
  7. 7. History of India  During the British Raj, many reformers such as Ram Mohan Roy, Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Jyotirao Phule etc. fought for the upliftment of women.  Peary Charan Sarkar, a former student of Hindu College, Calcutta and a member of "Young Bengal" set up the first free school for girls in India in 1847 in Barasat, a suburb of Calcutta (later the school was named Kalikrishna Girls' High School).  Raja Rammohan Roy's efforts led to the abolition of the Sati practice under Governor-General William Cavendish-Bentinck in 1829.  Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar's crusade for the improvement in condition of widows led to the Widow Remarriage Act of 1856

  10. 10. Don`t under estimate them! Generally many of people commonly think that women are good for nothing and the saying “Arrey , ladki hai yeh kya karegi “ is quite popular . But when we observe from Indian Rebellion of 1857 up to now women had proved that they are equal to men in all aspects and became successful in all fields. Some of the fields are given in which women succeeded.

  15. 15. What should we do?  A determined drive to aware the general public about the importance of bringing up the girl child and giving her equal status .Media can play a big role in this.  Stringent measures to curb selective abortions and dowry deaths and the practice of taking dowry .  Being a parent, they should treat their kids equally and lay equal emphasis their health and education. and finally last but not the least a little amount of care , a handful of warmth , a heart full of love for a girl child can make a difference .
  16. 16. What government should do? Strict rules should be allotted to the doctors in view of Female feticide  Punishment should be given for death of a girl child even if they are her parents  Protecting the girl child should be one of their scheme  Ultra scan test should be banned all over INDIA
