TOPIC FEMALE FOETICIDE

PowerPoint Presentation:

The term female foeticide means killing the female foetus in the mother's womb. How cruel? The practice has been followed in India for ages, a country that once described its women as godessess For this reason, Indian women will soon get extinct. Surprised? The most active part is being played by the women themselves -- why? Just for the mere want of a boy, mothers don't feel bad in strangulating their daughters in their wombs. Can anyone be more cruel? In India, sex ratio stands at a paltry 933:1000, i.e., 67 women short of every 1,000 males. SAVE GIRL CHILD

FEMALE FOETICIDE: AN EVIL IN INDIA Female foeticide is an extreme manfestation of violence against women. Female foetuses are selectively aborted after p re-nata l sex determination

PowerPoint Presentation:

FACTORS THAT FAVOUR FEMALE FOETICIDE Evil of dowry Urban living Educational status Small child norm Society Social security Religion

PowerPoint Presentation:

MAIN CAUSE OF FEMALE FOETICIDE T he general perception is that the cost of marriage and dowry has gone up and so daughters have become greater financial liabilities. The dowry system is invariably blamed. We are not convinced that dowry alone is the main cause of female foeticide. Families that are well-off and do not have to depend on dowry to augment their income are also opting for female foeticide. The real reason seems to be the high status of families with several sons and the low status of families with no sons. Another interesting factor for the preference for sons is that the prospect of migration of sons to, say the Gulf or western countries, is much higher for men than for women (except in special cases such as Kerala from where nurses go all over the world). GLOBALISATION is thus adding to the miseries of the girl child.
