Come join us for a screening of the documentary “It’s a Girl” on Tuesday March 12th at 6:30pm in Woodward 6 at UBC.
“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.” (www.itsagirlmovie.com)
Following the documentary, Langley MP Mark Warawa will give a overview of Motion 408, his proposition to END GENDERCIDE in Canada. He asks “that the House condemn discrimination against females, occurring through sex-selective pregnancy termination.”
