It’s a Girl! Documentary

In following up with my book review on Half the Sky, I wanted to share the preview for an upcoming documentary entitled It’s a Girl! I’ve seen the trailer making the rounds on Facebook, but I am posting it here in case anyone hasn’t seen it yet. It’s a harrowing look “gendercide”, the term that has been coined for the preference of a male child versus a female child. Approximately 200 million girls in the world are missing because of gendercide in countries like India and China.

Here is the trailer:

Upon doing research for this blog post I stumbled upon the fact that today, January 24t, is National Girl Child Day.

What are your thoughts on the trailer? I’d love to hear them in the comments!

  1. Ami! Thanks for posting this. I would love to see you do a series on this, maybe even ways we can start to educate the masses on the importance of girls…maybe we could collaborate! In any case, I can’t wait to see this documentary.
