About the Movement

We are a movement launched by Salt Initiatives, a charitable trust registered in New Delhi, India responding to the issue of female foeticide and other forms of violence against women. In our engagement with this issue, we have learnt that the problem goes beyond the issue itself—it’s root causes lie in the societal mind-set towards girls and women. Unless intervention is made at the mind-set level, all efforts made through legal and government actions will be insufficient to check the alarming decline of male female sex ratio in our country.
