Details zum Buch
In India, it costs a poor family 50 rupees, to hire a midwife to administer the birth of a child. For an additional ten rupees, the parents are assured that the birth of a girl will be met with an act of infanticide by the midwife. The alternative for many is an institution like the Delhi orphanage in which Fazal Sheikhs work on the predicament of the girl-child in India began 99 per cent of that orphanages population are girls. By delving into the story of the girl-child, Sheik renders the other side of the spectrum of women in India. "Girl Child" is the second part of his project on India, which was begun with "Moksha" (published in 2005 by Steidl).
