Global march For India`s Missing girls

Event Date: 
March 6, 2011 - 11:00 - 14:00

The Global Walk for India's Missing Girls' is a march by
people all over the world to protest against female foeticide and
infanticide- the genocide in India. In March 2010 ,
over a 1000 people walked in San Francisco, Delhi, Mumbai, Jamshedpur,
Pondicherry, Kuwait and Melbourne.

In India over the last 20 years, 10 million girls have been killed by
their parents, either before or immediately after birth because they
consider daughters a burden.

Why are these horrific crimes against women being ignored? Where is
the public outcry? Where is the media attention?

The next Global Walk for India's Missing Girls will be held in March
2011, on the occasion of International Women's Day and is aimed at
creating awareness and spurring action in the Indian and the
International communities.The Walk will take place in San Francisco,
Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkotta, Jamshedpur, Pondicherry , Melbourne
( Australia), and Kampala (Uganda), Sri Ganganagar and Jaipur -
Rajasthan, Ambala, Raipur _Chhatisgarh, Vancouver and Edmunton-
Canada.

Walk for India's Missing Girls is founded by the documentary film team
'Petals In The Dust: India's Missing Girls' - www.petalsinthedust.com

.
We hope through the walk and our film to create awareness globally, of
the elimination of India's girls.
