Daughter - "because this is a family who is regarded as a burden, she was not considered as a son, after marriage, she will leave her home."

This is one of the most vulnerable groups...... We're trying to tell people that it's like they're hurting their daughters (the daughter of a family in another family's role as a daughter-in-law)."

Granddaughter - "in many cases, is the mother to let those who have female fetal daughter-in-law to abortion, in order to call the mother to let his granddaughter have the opportunity to be born."

The BBC that part of the Indian women will now become statesmen, scientists, leadership, in the government, private enterprises, large companies have a good performance; and these recently, India is trying to take some legal system measures to protect women's rights and interests, such as the introduction of harsh legal restrictions caused by the sex of the fetus, abortion, dowry custom has also been banned, in marriage abused women can also obtain civil remedies, the death penalty is introduced rape cases. But the impact of the patriarchal system is still deeply rooted in the society of India, the data from the India government also shows that the attitude of women in India society is not friendly.

Heavy male thought in each year thousands of Indian women forced abortion, every day there are at least 22 women because of the dowry and brutally murdered, every 22 minutes have rape case, every 5 minutes occurred accident of a domestic violence.

For decades, the India authorities and social activists have been working to address these challenges.

In January last year, India Prime Minister Modi signed a "save the girl, let the girl by education" policy measures (programme BBBP), in order to solve the problem of sex ratio imbalance in India.

The campaign launched by Gandhi has been seen as a second attempt to weaken the influence of the India's patriarchal system and attract more people to the value of young women.
