March Against Female Foeticide Planned
A new campaign called: Because I was born…… is being launched under the Leadership of Loveen Kaur Gill of Amar Karma to speak against stigma of female foeticide prevalent in certain communities. A 3-dimensional campaign will be held as the group is adopting a stronger approach to stand up against it.
“As a theme of our movement: We will no longer plead for the lives of unborn girls by centering the loss of sisters or daughters because all those who are part of this crime, have let go off this sentiment ages ago. We will rather talk about the extinction of women by highlighting the difference we have made with our existence. Our campaign will involve women who nurture their household, raise children to give better citizens to the societies, to those women who have taken up the reins to implement changes such in political world, to medical field and to all walks of life.” Loveen Kaur Gill said while explaining composition of the campaign.
This crusade will have three components to it: Print media, Broadcast and Local Awareness.
Print edition has already started and progressing through its 4th episode this week in India and a newspaper in Canada-wide, renowned female writers are writing the series for this module. The group is also making documentary to broadcast in English and South Asian languages to raise the voice through broadcast medium. In the local awareness element, a walk is being organized in Brampton On September 15, 2012, and venue will be announced soon.
Along with Loveen Kaur Gill, this campaign is being accompanied by Dr. Gurminder Sidhu, Prof. Kanwaljit Dhillon, Surjit Kaur, Sandeep Dhanoa, Raj Ghuman and Harjot Ghuman from Fulkari Group along with Mandy Khurana from Amar Karma Organ Donation Society, many writers, film makers and others from Sahaita foundation.
