Wonderful piece. And thanks for the reality
check. India needs to do a lot in this
respect. It is shocking to say the least.

I have blogged about this issue with an economic perspective. I will follow up with possible solutions, as soon as possible.

I don’t believe what I read! That’s an atrocity worst than the genocide of the Jews on the 2nd word war!
It’s unbelievable these actions takes place on 2008..

14 street childeren in india I whis I could
spons 14 million childeren I will be able to

It is terrible that women are discriminated against in our country. The only solution to change the mindset of people is education. To prevent discrimination of the girl child, please vote for this online petition.

This ghastly crime committed by a male centric society has bogged me for years, now that I know that there is a sustained campign against this with a missionary zeal, I am sure that the eyes and ears of our insensetive society will be opend to this crime against humanity, before it is too late.
I srtongly feel taht all the organised and institutionalised religions are to be blamed to a very large extent, as there is a pronounced bais against women in all religions, and none of them wants to take women into the clergy. The roman catholic church and islam is in the forefront of the subjugation of women.
I wish this campaign and exted my whole hearted support.

I am working with an ngo as freelancer to prev-
ent female infanticides and feticides.Due to
illiteracy and social reasons the cruel act
prevailing. Awareness meet with slide/power
point presentation we can controll and stop
the brutal acts

1. We should force legislators to make laws stringent. There should be convictions and in every single case of dowry death.

2. Education should be utilised as a way to negate acquired concepts of gender inequality. North Indian kids grow up with the concept of ‘superiority’ over women. This should be removed.

Madam, I have been reading your book, ‘Sex and Power – Defining History, Shaping Societies’. I must say it is an exceptional book and certainly gave me a better perspective of our cultural history. In my opinion, the book should have perhaps been named differently so that it could have reached a wider audience who may not have perhaps understood what the book is all about from the title.

it’s sad, indeed; like the wells with good water in some parts of India also female population runs dry…

For a Country My India, who prides in having women as CEO’s of top investment banks & corporates, it is shocking that we have 50mn missing women on a/c of possible FGM.we have to raise our voice and stop this. Create awareness and stop this crime.

I am not in state of mind to write anything because i have lost my 24 year, well edu. daughter Anshu Singh, FIR No. 19/2010 in Mansarovar Park, North East Delhi,She faced dowry death on 25th Jan. 2010 just after 45 days of her marriage. I have great concerns about my rest 2 daughters, I am in fear, how to save them from this cruel world of making crimes on girls, my family is in great trauma since 2 months. The police is not taking pain to catch the culprits (only husband has arrested) the Father-inLaw, inspector (Pramod Kr. Jain) in UP police, mother in law Sushma Jain and brother in law Shashank Jain are absconding since more than 2 months, no NBW issued, NO Kurki Notice issued, no chargsheet submitted (they say that time is for 90 days). If you can do any type of legal help in this case, my family will be obliged to you.

Pl. Help me for any type of Guidance to Fight with the Culprits.

I am a visual artist and I had a solo exhibition addressing this very situation. This must stop-NOW! We are killing off Mother India by killing off these women-60 million PLUS…who knows. It brings tears to my eyes as I write this. I am re-committed. THere is such a culture of denial around this issue(even in second and third generation Indians) . we have to addres this problem and seperate it from Indian culture. Violence is NOT part of the leagacy I want to pass on to my daughter. -soraya

A girl. A woman is a human being & has a right to live & enjoy life. Why be mutilated 4 what I am. I am against FGM

i am sure when people like you come forward somethinworthwhile will surely happen then it is troue when we speak about developement and empowerment nothing is done to those senseless people who do not consider the girls as useful to society they consider them only the peiece of decoration when the use is over destroy them. by aborting, killing, murdering for dowry etc. it is shocking still in this modern times such evil persits it has to be completly eliminated.

This site is very interesting and informative. The life history of woman, whatever she is Indian or Bangladeshi or Pakistani, is more or less same. Fighting for existence with dignity and respect is always the same. I am with u. Thanks.
