India's Women are Demanding Justice – Now is the Time to Lend Your Voice

IT'S A GIRL DOCUMENTARY - End Gendercide Now

A message from the cause

IT'S A GIRL DOCUMENTARY - End Gendercide Now

Add your voice

The New York Times reported on Monday, "India's government on Sunday approved tough new laws to deter sexual violence against women." But Rita Banerji of the 50 Million Missing Campaign says recent government action is symbolism over substance.

After thousands of demonstrators took to the streets to protest the brutal gang rape and death of a 23 year old medical student, the Indian government responded by asking J.S. Verma, ex-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, to head an investigative panel on rape related violence on girls and women in India.

But as Justice Verma himself has pointed out: the Government completely ignored the observations and recommendations of the Verma Committee! The 50 Million Missing Campaign has detailed the major findings of the report and posted a copy for all to see here, after the government removed the report from their website.

The recent violence is a product of India's discriminatory culture against women. These underlying sexist attitudes are also fueling India's female gendercide. You can add your voice to those demanding an end to gendercide in India. The petition calling on world leaders to end the female gendercide in India is nearly two thirds of the way to our goal of 500,000 signatures!

Help us make our goal by signing the petition and committing to share with 10 friends. Rita Banerji and all of those fighting for justice and equality for women in India need our help. Sign the petition now!
