Gujarat is suffering from one of the worst outcomes of gender-based discrimination, To maintain male-female sex ratio. The state average of child sex ratio (0-6 years) declined dramatically. To address this issue various efforts are being made, one of the major being the ‘Beti Bachao Campaign’ that was launched by Women and Child Development Department, Gujarat. Gender Resource centre, an autonomous body, was an active partner in the campaign who was involved in documentation and publications with a realization that it could play a vital role in changing the perception of the society in general on such important issue.
