One is amazed at the insensitivity of the masses there amongst whom it happens publicly but they not only tolerate it but also perhaps enjoy it and, in the process, aggravate it, least affected by the performance, leadership and personal achievements of women in the rest of the world.
Fist’s report should further goad governments everywhere to intensify awareness programs against gender discrimination and atrocities on women. In this connection, Member Parliament Harsimrat Kaur’s initiative NANHI CHHAAN for the empowerment and education of women with the sole objectives of curbing female foeticide in Punjab and re-greening the state now seems to have gathered steam and is certain to succeed.
