50 million missing

India now has about 50 million missing women. In many southern villages, women still give in to pressure from the rest of the community, killing their own baby girls. These mothers share their painful stories. Despite the possibility of life-imprisonment, an estimated 30,000 girls are killed at birth every year in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
