Son or daughter, it should not make any differenceGirls were facing many inequalities in society and many used to prefer to have a male child. This was more so in rural areas and uneducated families. In rural areas, there were many cases where a daughter in law who delivered a female child was treated very badly.
But the governments came out with many initiatives to encourage girls. Reservations to females in colleges and jobs, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, Save the Girl Child and free/subsidized education to girls are some such initiatives taken by the government. With these initiatives, I think we are seeing some change in the mindset of the people. These days we are seeing girls competing in all the areas with men and coming out successfully. There is no area where we feel that a girl can't compete.
Son or daughter, it should not make any difference. This concept should come into the minds of all the people and we all should empower girls so that they will have brighter days in the coming days.
