The 50 Million Missing is the largest and most vocal campaign against female genocide in the world today.  It is also a zero-fund campaign!!  Which means the campaign has no funds and no ‘Donate’ button!  Our effectiveness has been hugely dependent on volunteer help and support from the public.  See our patrons page for more on how this works.

    To be a noble human being is to from a philanthropic of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to group uncertain things beyond your own pilot, that can govern you to be shattered in hugely extreme circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly weighty about the condition of the righteous passion: that it is based on a conviction in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it’s based on being more like a shop than like a treasure, something kind of tenuous, but whose very precise attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.

    This is like a good resource of which you’re providing therefore you give the item away intended for no cost. When i really enjoy seeing web-sites of which recognize this price connected with presenting some sort of good quality reference intended for free. It’s this classic everything that all-around comes near routine ..

    i want to start a new group to save as many lives as possible. i call it the new Delhi airlift. what needs to be done is we need to hire security agents who could take women in immediate danger to new Delhi where they could visit as many embassies as possible until they get passports. finally the group would buy them plane tickets to the countries they got into. Canada will probably be the easiness country to get into. these women will to be safe there until the situation cools down enough for them to go home. is anyone with me?

    Anthropologically, it is a strange aberration for a culture to eliminate its breeding stock – maybe as a population control device.

      unfortunately your sort of right. during world war 2 the Nazis created a special SS unit whose sole goal was to “create living space” for Germans in eastern Europe by killing all non Germans in there path. the unit was called the Einsatzgruppen. this is sort of the same method of population control here.

    Without turning a cynic I would like all of us to start with ourselves, our families first. Why ‘dhol’ ‘baja’ on the birth of a boy and a death like silence if it is a girl. Why every sacrifice by sisters and mothers and not by fathers and brothers. Why does a mother-in-law turn the biggest tyrant for a newly wed. And why are we not receptive when a girl complaints about the probing hands of a relative. Time for us to introspect, despite our anger.

    I’m not good at all in these social medias – (I’m 68 and re-started with Internet in the autumn of 2010 after 10 years of absence) but I can’t get any “share” to my Facebook. The FB button at the bottom of the page only registers that I ‘like’ this page. Am I doing something wrong? Or should I cut and paste your page’s adress into my FB? You’ll have to do that in several cases when pages lack a FB button.

    • January 15, 2013 12:06 pm

      @Claes-Peter : if you click on the facebook share button it should post on your facebook page. But if it does not, then yes, please copy the url line for the post and paste that in your facebook. It should work. Thanks for the support!

    There must be consequences if the births are manipulated so 50 million girls and women are missing. That must mean, that 50 million men never can hope to get a wife. I don’t think million of men are turning gay because of this – like in prisons and on board of the sailing ships 100 years ago and earlier, that could be on travel for years with an all male crew – but couldn’t it increase the risks of rape? A lot of poor men will have to choose between prostitutes and celibacy, but it just one in a thousand turn into a rapist, that would mean 50.000 rapists! I know that the subject of sex is traditionally a lot more sensitive in India than in most ‘western’ countries, but no debate profits if everybody is trying to ignore the presence of an elephant in the middle of the room, metaphorically speaking.

      actually you left out a third option that these men can start killing each other over women. this could eventually plunge India into civil war. the presence of the Maoist rebels in eastern India may be an early sign of this happening.

    Hi is there a pdf version of the petition that I can take to One Billion Rising on Thursday for peopel to sign please?

    • February 12, 2013 8:12 pm

      Sandhya — We’ve tried that sometimes, and we find we lose signatures with lose sheets of paper. But we’d appreciate it much if you could please download and print this picture and distribute it to people, so they could go to the website, check out the info and sign the petition online. Thank you for the support!

    Hi everyone! I wrote a piece (poetry/spoken word). Please feel free to use to under my name 🙂
    Also it is a bit gruesome, but then again the reality is far from gruesome.
    I hope you like it, and that it serves the purpose of raising awareness!

    Respected Rita jee,

    Your regular and endless efforts for atrocities of Girls and Women in India and Abroad are praiseworthy. I still don’t have contributed to this platform but wish to devote my whole life after one year (as you are awareof such reason). Kindly send me the matter for spreading more and more awareness, to print posters, banners and other timely need matters about our campaign in Delhi (in need whenever required) for success of your precious aim this platform adhere with.

    with warm regards

      Dear Mr. Singh, You are are one the strongest supporters of this campaign. We admire your courage in the fight for justice for your daughter Anshu’s death. And how you even began to study law to fight the case to the end. You have always advised us morally and legally in our cases and we rely on you for that support. Perhaps the best way to spread the message is with this video Thank you very much! ~ Rita

    I am a indocanadian general practitioner in Canada
    Is there any specific role a health care worker can provide ?

    • October 2, 2013 11:41 am

      One organization that was very helpful to us is Interplast. Here’s their website One of our cases was that of dowry related violence, of a young woman, Roopa, whose in-laws force-fed her acid. Interplast has camps in India which help many such women, (also women burnt most of them in dowry cases), but they didn’t have one then. However, they advised and guided us through her procedures, and what steps to take, etc. which was very helpful. Please contact them, surely they’ll be happy to have your support.

    Hello, I truly admire you for your efforts in stopping the atrocities that many girls face in today’s society. My name is Riya Shergill and I am 14 years old. I am writing to ask you as to what I can do to help your organization, because I would love to get involved however I live in the U.S. This is a cause that I have very strong feelings about.
