These beautiful girls, unfathomably divinely gorgeous young women. I began each trailer, and my heart gave up when my ojos began to flood. Just know we must hold together, hold for love, be much better than we are right now—here today. Where are the righteous men? Those who vow to protect the wombs of those which first birthed them? ...

It’s a Girl!– 2012
from the It’s a Girl! film – official site
In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”.
The film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.
