Discriminations faced by a girl child

Gender discrimination is a major cause of the global order. The economies are galloping at very high speed, new inventions; new techniques are being developed each day. Yet, the society seems to be taking a step backwards, with its attitude towards girl child. This has been happening since centuries and it is high time, some concrete actions be taken to combat this situation. Preference for a male child is a deep rooted psychology in not only the developing countries of Asia and Africa but also developed countries in the America and Europe. This trend is both disturbing and shocking. People feel that if they have a son, the son would inherit the property and family name. He would then carry off their legacy further.

In recent years, the government has developed free education program for single girl child in order to discourage multiple child birth. Government has also developed sch

Educate girls for their better future

There is a famous saying, “educate a man, you educate one person, educate a woman, you educate a complete family” but how many of us really believes in it? It is been confirmed by reports that more than 50 percent of girls in India fail to enroll in school and those who do are likely to drop out by the age of 12. Lack of education and illiteracy in girls denies them to have good knowledge and skills needed for enhancing their status in society. Educating girl child helps in realizing her hidden potential, gives her freedom to think, act, question and judge world smartly and independently. Imparting education to girls makes them wise decision maker, teaches civic sense and help them to lead a respectful life. Educating girl child is never wastage of money or resources instead it is a better investment for parents as once girls get employed, they will think of their parents before boys who will think of their own family first. Educated girls have better knowledge about health and hygi
