Hardback    9788188965687


Daughter Deficit unravels the causes of daughter elimination, and the mechanisms which create and sustain an environment in which this is imaginable.



Product Description


Daughter Deficit is about girls who are denied the right to live or to be born in India, and it asks why and how such a situation has come about. Daughter elimination in the form of sex selection, female infanticide and neglect is not an aberration or an idiosyncrasy, it accounts for a large proportion of missing girls in India, measured by the sex ratio imbalance in the 0-6 age group.
