How responsible are mothers who kill their daughters in India
The latest post on Gender Bytes is in reflection of the recent murder of a new born baby girl by her mother in a hospital in Mumbai. She had twins -- a boy and a girl, and she kept the boy but threw the girl out of the window.
Most of the female infanticides in India are committed by women -- the mother, grandmothers, midwives.
Are they criminals? Or victims of a system that teaches them to hate girls.
