According to a U.N. estimate, up to 200 million women are missing in the world today due to gendercide. Gendercide is the systematic killing of members of a specific gender. The horrific idea, that if a baby will be a certain sex, it should be aborted or killed right after birth, is not a mere idea but a reality. This book tackles this overwhelmingly tough topic. Issues are debated from multiple viewpoints, provided by high-respected sources. Readers will evaluate the relationship between sex-selection abortion and gendercide, and the relationship between gender-related violence and genocide. Readers will also examine the stories of those who are the target of gendercide.
