THE NEED

CHILD SEX RATIO – INDIA CENSUS 2011

INDIA RANKS FOURTH IN THE LIST OF COUNTRIES WITH THE WORST CHILD SEX RATIO

WHY ARE INDIA'S DAUGHTERS UNWANTED ??

Inheritance
Families fear that any property inherited by women risks falling into the control of her in-laws.
Tradition
Many cultural rites and traditions in india are required to be performed by the son and hence sons are considered of greater value to the family.
Paraya Dhan
Societal norms label daughters to be "paraya dhan' which means girls are only guests at the parent's home and will eventually belong to the in-laws once married off.
Income
Sons are generally considered to be the "bread-winners" for the family. they are preferred for the economic stability they supposedly bring.
Dowry System
The burden of dowry leads many parents to consider a girl-child as financial liability for the future.
