What is Gendercide?

This fly-through simulation of our giant art exhibit allows you to see the scale of gendercide. Each pair of baby booties you will see represents 10,000 missing females in today's world. A total of 11,700 pairs of booties are used to represent the 117 million women missing due to sex-selective abortion, female infanticide, female child neglect, unnecessary maternal death, and (for older women and widows) unequal access to food and shelter (UN Population Fund, 2012). We call this "gendercide."
