The Concern

The Concern

The provisional results of the 2011 census of India show that there are 914 female children to every 1000 male children under 6 years age, a drop from the last census in 2001 (927:1000). In some states the figure is as low as 830:1000. In Delhi the child sex ratio stands at 866:1000. While the government has made pre-birth sex determination tests illegal the practice still continues in different forms among the urban population through the connivance of the medical practitioners.

About Us

Let Her Live

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.
