Gendercide is the loss of female life worldwide due to:
sex-selective abortion to favor boys over girls
gross neglect of young girls
entirely preventable maternal death
inability of older women to access food & shelter
socially sanctioned violence against women
117 million females are "missing" (dead) globally. That's 3.4% of the global female population -- gone. Source -- United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) using data from 2010 world census More FAQs
Note: The Gendercide Awareness Project is neither pro-life nor pro-choice. We are strictly neutral regarding that controversy. Happily, most everyone agrees that gendercide must end. Our organization welcomes all individuals in combating the extreme devaluation of women that leads to gendercide.
