Female infanticide is the deliberate killing of newborn female children. In countries with a history of female infanticide, the modern practice of sex-selective abortion is often discussed as a closely related issue. Female infanticide is a major cause of concern in India. It has been argued that the “low status” in which women are viewed in patriarchal societies creates a bias against females
The programs were designed to bring focus to the core concerns like female feticide and female infanticide. Students including girls and boys from PGDM, BBA and B.Com participated in NukkadNatak tried to encourage varied classes of society by putting across the message of saving, nurturing and educating the girl child.
