Sanjit Das

Fatehgarh Saheb, Punjab, INDIA

A girl only family in Fatehgarh district of Punjab. The names have been held to maintain anonymity. 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.
