Sanjit Das

Fatehgarh Saheb, Punjab, INDIA

40 year old Kusum has a 15 year old son, Satish Kumar. She had undergone ultrasound when she was pregnant with Satish and would have gone through with abortion if it wasn't a boy. India's daughters are disappearing. Deeply entrenched discrimination against women has led to the survival rates of girls hitting an all-time low, with sex-selective abortion and neglect on the increase. Many families now use ultrasound scans and abort female foetuses, despite the existence of the 1994 law banning gender selection and selective abortion.
