In order to take the next step from awareness to action, the It’s a Girl campaign is partnering with several organizations who are running projects on the ground in China and India to fight gendercide in these countries.
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers
Women’s Rights Without Frontiers (WRWF) is a broad-based, international coalition committed to ending forced abortion and sexual slavery that occur in China as a result of the One Child Policy. To that end, WRWF’s immediate goal is to raise public awareness about the coercive enforcement of China’s One Child Policy, the connection between this coercion and human trafficking in Asia, and the other human rights abuses that arise out of this coercive enforcement. Through on-the-ground projects in China, WRWF is providing food, shelter, protection and much-needed financial help to desperate mothers of baby girls and women must go into hiding to avoid forced abortions and sterilizations by China’s family planning services. Ultimately, we hope that exposing these violations of women’s rights and equipping the media and the public to understand these violations, will lead to more freedom, justice, and women’s rights in China and worldwide.
Women’s Rights in China
Women's Rights in China is a nonprofit organization advocating for the most disadvantaged group in China. The organization cooperates with allied organizations and a network of generous donors to call for international awareness and understanding of the critical situation of women and children in China. Through international monitoring, exposing concrete cases of abuse, and the education of Chinese women about their universal human rights and dignities, Women’s Rights in China aim to hasten social transformation in China and help establish a democratic society capable of ensuring all women’s rights.
50 Million Missing
The 50 Million Missing Campaign is an extensive, online, global campaign to stop the largest ongoing genocide in human history, which has led to the elimination of more than 50 million from India’s population over the past three generations. Because much of the public is largely uninformed about the actual scale of this crisis, the organization’s aim to raise international awareness about female genocide in India and to inspire community-based action for justice and change. The 50 Million Missing Campaign is also involved in lobbying efforts to get this gender-specific mass elimination listed as “genocide” under the 1948 U.N. Convention on Genocide Act. Through rallying international support, the organization aims to pressure the Indian government to enforce existing laws pertaining to female feticide, infanticide, dowry, and dowry murders and to commit to a timeline within which India’s female genocide will be eliminated.
Invisible Girl Project
Invisible Girl Project is a human rights organization combating female genocide through feticide and infanticide. The organization believes that the core of the problem is traditional cultural bias against girls, and their goal is to work with field partners to increase the perceived value of girls in India. Invisible Girl Project developed several projects in India that care for vulnerable girls, providing them with a healthy, loving environment, where they receive a quality education, medical check-ups, and counseling services to help them recognize their inherent value. By housing these girls, the organization protects them from the possibility of sexual exploitation, trafficking, forced labor, and other gender-related dangers. They also provide professional training and employment opportunities so that the girls may earn reasonable salaries to provide for their families.
