I am a Girl..Will you Let me Live?
Female Foeticide or Gendercide is a topic that has been discussed often but real changes can happen only when attitudes change especially in countries like India and China where Gendercide is rampant. Attitudes can only change when awareness is created and an infrastructure is created that facilitates & encourages gender equality. Even in this day and age this crime happens and my heart bleeds every time I read it.
