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?

It will require a massive, persistent, prolonged and sustained effort to be continued at least for 3 to 4 generations to change this mentality of believing to be a superior gender compared to the female gender. Time and again it has been proven that female gender is equally or even more capable than the male gender. Equality must be perceived more as strength than weakness as it is being perceived. Humans can achieve a lot more by co-existing, working cohesively as a team with mutual respect.

A girl child faces threats to her existence right from the conceived stage till old age. Be it female foeticide, sexual exploitation, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, dowry harassment, labor exploitation, gender inequality,etc. This is because of the mindset of male gender that blindly believes that it is superior, more strong, more powerful, more intelligent, smarter than the female gender. This mindset is continuing even today and massive effort is required to change this significantly.

Gender treatment is much better in Assam in comparision to other Indian states. I have not heard of any Assamese family saving from day 1 after the girl is born, for her dowry. Having said, all things are not hunky dory. Here are some suggestion: teaching girls martial arts in school, adding lesson about gender equality and diversity in school curriculum to create awareness, calling inspiration women speakers to school for motivation talks.

If we can count 1 lady's vote as 1.02, whereas 1 man's vote as 1, then it will automatcially make ladies more important. All parties will give more importance to female public and in about a few years the problem will be gone.

Mental abuse is not only prevalent in between the four walls of a house....mental abuse are often faced working women where women are tortured by other woman who are more powerful and even by the stronger sex and in many cases women seems to do injustice to another which is really sad in our society... Bureaucrats pressurize women to resign from their jibs when they find any women who has good potential..... Bureaucrats or high ranking officers are definitely the decisions makers and breakers

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.
