University of Toronto Students for Life: “It’s A Girl” Movie Screening: Monday, March 25

This post was written for University of Toronto Students for Life by Blaise Alleyne. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

On Monday, March 25th at 6pm in Sid Smith 2135, we’re hosting a free public screening of the documentary It’s A Girl. Help spread the word with our Facebook event. Hope to see you there!

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 war against girls is rooted in centuries-old tradition and sustained by deeply ingrained cultural dynamics which, in combination with government policies, accelerate the elimination of girls.

Shot on location in India and China, It’s a Girl reveals the issue. It asks why this is happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women.
