The Global Walk for India's Missing Girls

The Global Walk for India's Missing Girls' is a march organized by people all over the world to protest against female foeticide and infanticide, the worst genocide in India's history. In March 2010 , over a 1000 people walked in San Francisco, Delhi, Mumbai, Jamshedpur, Pondicherry, Kuwait and Melbourne.

In India over the last 20 years, 10 million girls have been killed by their parents, either before or immediately after birth because they consider daughters a burden.

Why are these horrific crimes against women being ignored? Where is the public outcry? Where is the media attention?

The next Global Walk for India's Missing Girls will be held in March 2011, on the occasion of International Women's Day and is aimed at creating awareness and spurring action in the Indian and the International communities.The Walk will take place in San Francisco, Mumbai, Delhi, Jamshedpur, Pondicherry , Melbourne ( Australia), and Kampala (Uganda).

Walk for India's Missing Girls is founded by the documentary film team 'Petals In The Dust: India's Missing Girls' - www.petalsinthedust.com.
We hope through the walk and our film to create awareness globally, of the elimination of India's girls.

Thanks Wiwin, The culture of female feticide and female infanticide has been goinng on from centuries, and the sex ratios have dropped dangerously low in many states in India. Strong daughetr dislike among the population Coupled with the corrupt government who is simply turning a blind eye to the practise, this is a genocide which is being practised in India and some other Asian countries.

We are hoping to gather international support against this practise, and also hoping there will be a international uproar regarding the inaction by the government . Thanks a lot.

Dear Mitu

 

I really surprised and been inspiring r4edaing your blog.  For me in Indonesia, we still less recognize and aware of  this issues.  Reading yours suddenly I realize the phenomena might be also takes place in Indonesia but at different context and condition.  I find that statistically it is reported at my province that school enrollment and participation among girls is less then boys to access junior high school.  And I believe its such female feoticide at different context.  Really thanks to awake such awareness.

 

Warmly from Indinesia Mitu..
