Dr. Avnish Jolly, 23rd September, 2008:Child Relief and You (CRY), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) will launch a microsite on the eve of the Girl Child Day on September 24 and it will provide an interactive platform to people, which, besides providing information on skewed sex ratio and various campaigns,
will allow one to express his or her opinion on the issue. With videos, opinion polls, articles, volunteer activities, campaign material downloads, e-newsletter and blogs, the site will help one explore the not often talked about reasons which give rise to such practices as female foeticide.
Meenakshi Kohli , CRY said that we believe the girl is a child first and that gender is merely descriptive. Yet statistics show that girls have not fared well so far, and this is not due to their lack of capability, but because people around incapacitate them and this platform will help people express their opinion on the whole issue and initiate movements to turn around this negative trend, she stressed.
