National Girl Child Day, Women shared Feeling of being Unwanted
National Girl Child Day: How it feels when they say, Kash iski jagah ek beta Ho jata?
Significance of National Girl Child Day
Inequalities faced by the girl child in India are infamous, and its implications continue to torment millions of lives. In addition to threatening issues like female foeticide and child marriages, girls also face inequalities in education, jobs, and more.
Many women in the country feel that they are not met with the same options or opportunities that boys get and this celebration aims at bridging this gap.
Objectives of National Girl Child Day
The national girl child day celebration focuses on three main objectives. To raise awareness on the rights of the girl-child
To bring to the podium the various atrocities and inequalities that girl children fight day in and day out
To promote and increase the importance given to health, education, and well-being for girls.
This day is marked by organizing different awareness campaigns on saving the girl child, their rights, nutrition, health, and other issues. The government has also taken other measures like banning the use of ultrasound for discrimination and making child marriages illegal.
As per the 2011 census, the literacy rate for females is 65.46% as against 82.14% of males.
Last year, we had celebrated the sex ratio in the country that came in favor of girls. However, many laws have restricted female feticide but at the cost of individual desire. A girl child may be allowed to take birth and the acceptance from family, society, and with your own self, takes a very long time.
