‘It’s a Girl’ screening
In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”.
It’s a Girl reveals this issue. It asks why this is happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women.
The film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.
It’s a Girl is now available for screening events globally.
It’s a Girl is making the film available to universities, community centers, churches and just about everywhere else around the world. If you have a passion for seeing gendercide brought to an end, believe in promoting equality for women, or are interested in human rights and international development, please bring It’s a Girl to your city!
