"It's a Girl"

I like to post videos and documentaries about societal issues from time to time. They're are important to each and everyone one of us. Why? Because these are the things that are happening and going on around us and in the world that we live in today. Some of these issues, you'd find hard to think that they are still happening in this modern age, but they are.

This is the video trailer is about a documentary abour women killing the unborn, and more importantly, unwanted, infant daughters as part as what has been called a "gendercide".

I haven't watched this yet, but I can say in  the least that it should be interesting.

Here is an excerpt about the documentary :

" In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called "gendercide".

This documentary film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters' lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.

And this is a note via climateadaptation :
“It’s a Girl” is a jaw-dropping documentary about women killing their unwanted newborn daughters. I’ve written dozens of posts about women, women’s rights, and vulnerability to climate change, here. The climate connection can be found in my post on a report covering Adaptation, Gender, and Women’s empowerment, here.

You know, it's really sad to see that countries such as China have rules and regulations about reproduction, limiting how many children a couple can have. It's just moronic, and you really can't believe that this is life, this is what civilization has come to.

There's got to be a way to change this world.
