Girl Child: Changing Perceptions (Volume 2: North India)

Vibha Chaturvedi (Author) Nilima Srivastava (Author)
Census 2001 showed a sharp decline in child sex ratio in states of North India. It has become a matter of grave concern for demographers, development professionals and academicians. Focusing on two of the objectives of Women Empowerment Policy of 2001, WSDC carried out a multi centre research study with four other Women's Studies Centres and one NGO.

The present volume is based on the analysis of the data that has come from the institutions that were involved in the research. The locations of data collection are Delhi and districts of Jammu, Shimla, Kurukshetra, Nawan Shahar and Jaipur.

The book gives insight into regional variations and rural urban differentials in attitude towards the girl child in contemporary society. The study confirms societal biases towards the girls but also reflects a change in mind set more clearly in some locations of enquiry.
