At a time, when people are championing equality for girl children, a section of the society still regards the girl child as a liability. The thinking that boys deserve more than girls arises from our age-old societal construct. Cases of female foeticide, violation of basic human rights, physical and mental abuse, gender inequality, etc., are still prevalent and yet to be fully erased.
It is our duty to create a healthy environment for the girl children where they can grow without any fear and humiliation. A girl with proper access to resources today will become an empowered woman tomorrow. She should be able to pursue her dreams without any inhibitions.

On the occasion of National Girl Child Day, MyGov Assam seeks your suggestions on how can the various stakeholders contribute toward all round development of the girl children? Do you think the society is still lagging behind in ensuring safety for the girls? What are some steps you believe could help spread awareness toward safeguarding rights, dignity and aspirations of the girl child?

1. neither in schools nor in public areas girls can find lavatories. Please ensure such facilities to protect girls dignity, safty and physical hygiene .
2. Social mindset for girlchild needs to be changed with times. Village to village awareness programme may help the issue.
3. Gender friendly curriculum in schools must be included. most of the chapters are male centric where girls can hardly relate themselves.
4. Focus and create awareness, open environment on menstruation health,taboos.
