Unwanted -The Ongoing War against Daughters in India by Tania Boa, Gerhard Bliedung, Benjamin Wiederkehr

629,000 girls (aged 0–6 years) are estimated to be missing in India every year. The majority of them are aborted, others are killed, abandoned or neglected to death just because they are girls. The roots of this problem lie in a strong patriarchal society that has translated into an obsessive preference for sons and discrimination against girls. This is an analysis of the problem from the inside, a research of reasons and related factors to draw a picture of the foeticide and infanticide in India.
