What is Gendercide?
Gendercide is the silent elimination of females, young and old, through sex-selective abortion, infanticide, gross neglect, and for older women, lack of access to food and shelter. Today, there are 117 million women and girls missing in the world. More FAQs

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."
