I am signing the petition, but also doing research on China. It is nominally a Communist country, but almost devoid of Socialism. Children are obliged to take care of their parents when they are sick, or can no longer work. Men earn more than women, and are therefore more desirable. Despite China's size, it does not have enough arable land to feed its current population of 4 Billion. Making matters worse, much of the industrial development has taken place on river deltas and coastal plains,...

Despite China's size, it does not have enough arable land to feed its current population of 4 Billion. Making matters worse, much of the industrial development has taken place on river deltas and coastal plains, which are the most fertile lands for farming. Supplies of fresh potable water are also low. They must reduce their population, or the next generation will starve. How should they do it? Facing the same situation, how would you propose handling it? I don't currently have answers, and I welcome your input!

I am not signing the petition because the people of China are suffering under the weight of their country's population. In any other circumstance I would be shocked at the idea of a One Child Policy- in the dire circumstance China is in, such a policy, to my personal beliefs, is an sad yet necessary solution. This does not mean I am pro-gendercide- I believe the only way to stop this practice is to change the culture of China, and this starts at policy. Earnings for the same job must be the...

Earnings for the same job must be the same for both sexes. Mandate equal opportunity. I have heard women of my own milieu say that boys carry on the family name but girls don't, making a boy is desirable- hyphenate last names to reflect the importance of both the mother and father. A policy and (gradually) ensuing culture change is the answer, not the continuation of overpopulation.

A system of social insurance might make sense as well. I expressed my ambivalence about signing in my post. I recognize that policy is the issue, and the simple fact that China cannot feed its current population is proof. Thank you for your response!

Get your facts rights people. In china you basically need to have a son if you want to be looked after in old age. Your son in china is the one who will be your main supply of income once the parents are to old to work as the daughters in Chinese society are to get married off ad serve their husbands. So this being said if Chinese people have two girls they get a pension which is equivalent to about a bowl of rice a day. First u must stop poverty in china before u can stop this.

Therefore one should honour women as ‘ PUJYA DEVI’ and refrain from committing any atrocities upon them.

Therefore one should honour women as ‘ PUJYA DEVI’ and refrain from committing any atrocities upon them.
Equality on the basis of sex and individuality of women has been recognized by the Indian Constitution. The number of laws has been enacted to improve the lot of women, but it has not been successful in changing the status of women. The women continue to be exploited, as they are dependent, socially, economically and psychologically upon men.
Education, an important source of personality development and emancipation has failed to bring women at par with men. Marriage being the sole purpose of women’s life, education becomes only a means to attain that purpose.
Women constitute one of the backward social groups is in the need of special protection. Tradition, religion and law have conspired to make women subordinate to men. The subordination of women is against the spirit of democracy, it is against equality and justice.The abolition of Sati and Lord Bentinck ( Bengal Sati Regulation, 1929) was no doubt the first legal measure for social reform. Legalization of widow’s remarriage, prohibition of child marriage and recognition of widow’s property rights were some of the other reforms made during British Rule. The Constitution of India, realizing the special need for ameliorative efforts to bring about equality between man and woman provided the special provision for women and children.
