 “We should keep an end to the violence that kills women before birth,child abuse and domestic violence.These incidents threatens us to remove the mask of modernity as we still remain in primitive society rooted in inequality, polarised by class, caste and religion”said Dr. Rekha Mehra.
 Rape Culture  sensationed in India due to inequality and of embedded violence. Women are wonderful daughters, sisters, wives, and mothers. They should be loved, cared, respected and should be protected she added.
Education is the powerful tool for women to improve self-image, acceptance of family planning and their empowerment. Days are not so far, when there may be emergence of the situation where brides will no tbe available for the marriage of the sons to maintain lineage and continue the human race of even those people who believe on long standing tradition of son preference.
 India has yet a long way to go in her fight against pre-birth elimination of females. Time is quickly ticking away. A shortage of girls would lead to a shortage of eligible brides thus making the girl a "scarce commodity".
