The culture of son-preference has led to the practice of gender-biased sex-selection in India. As a result, there are just 919 girls in India per 1,000 boys aged 0-6 years. In parts of Punjab, Haryana, UP, MP, Maharashtra and Delhi, there are less than 850 girls to 1,000 boys. This film by UNFPA and Breakthrough reminds people that the more women there are. The world will be that much better for them.
