Second Annual Walk for India's Missing Girls

50 million girls have been eliminated from India's population in the last century.

10 million girls have been killed by their parents, either before or immediately
after birth in the last two decades.

In 2010, to combat and raise awareness of this horrific injustice, Indian women and their supports worldwide founded the "Walk for India's Missing Girls." Seven cities across four countries participated in the Walk.

This year the movement has grown and the Global Walk will take place in over 15 cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Agra, Kolkata, Chennai, Jamshedpur, Goa, Sri Ganganagar, Dubai, Toronto, Vancouver, Washington D.C and San Francisco.

The San Francisco Walk will begin at 11AM on Saturday, March 5 at San Francisco's City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlet Place, San Francisco and ends at Union Square.
