That a girl is seen as a burden to the family, with loads of pending expenditure on her wedding; that she is seen as someone else’s possession, just to be reared; that remains as the biggest and most spiteful element that ails the Indian mindset!”

The Indian obsession with the male being the only rightful heir; the one to give them salvation by lighting their pyre; this regressive ideology has single-handedly led the country to the throes of social destruction. Such has been the onslaught that women have themselves, unknowingly resigned to be the subordinated one. The fact that women have to prove themselves to be equal to men, in a male-dominated society eventually leads to the former’s abuse and rampant discrimination. At the Save Girl Child Mission, we analyze how this deep-rooted patriarchic mindset affects the girl child, right form her birth, staying with her all through her life:

  • Selective conception and consequent abortion to avoid the birth of a girl child
  • Discrimination, while providing education, especially in the lower middle class, in a clear violation of the Right to Education
  • Constant fear of male domination and sexual abuse influences the higher educational, professional and career choices
  • Unabashed discrimination is done on the basis of looks, complexion and other physical attributes
  • Males essentially remain the key decision makers, which often goes against the women’s interests
