Women partnered with Christopher Hunt and created a campaign against gender inequality using real Google auto complete results. The ads highlight popular discussions and beliefs about women across the internet. The results are COMPELLING!!!! Try it yourself.
There is a global impact of gender inequalities. To the extreme, gendercide is REAL and is happening in India and China. Millions of baby girl fetuses are aborted just because they are girls and once newborn they are killed. We know that in the Indian tradition the family of the bride must give dowry to the groom’s family. Girls are seen as expensive and as being unable to carry the family name. Therefore, boys are more convenient to have. Women are being forced to abort their fetuses if it carries a female gender or kill their newborn baby girls. This is legal in India. I watched this documentary which discusses gendercide in India and its absolutely astonishing.
Also, China has one of the highest male-to-female ratios. There are millions of missing girls and women. This is an EXTRAORDINARY level of gender discrimination.
