Female Infanticide

Female infanticide refers to the horrible practice of killing an infant for being a girl. It stems from deep chauvinistic attitudes present in India and it's one of the reasons for the low sex ratio prevalent in most states. Noted economist Amartya Sen famously estimated that there must be over 100 million 'missing women' in Asia i.e. girl children killed either due to sex-selective abortion or female infanticide.
