After visiting India I found it impossible not to react to the dire gender inequality, social discrimination, lack of education and violence against women and girl children. Female foeticide is still prevalent in Indian society due to deeply entrenched cultural attitudes that have prevailed for hundreds of years up until today despite the advances in science and technology. It is common not only in rural areas but even more so in urban areas.
