A Boy or a Girl? Does it Matter?

GENDER INEQUALITY Gender Bias in Parenting
A Boy or a Girl? Does it Matter?
A boy child & a girl child have been treated differently by Indian parents since ages. A desire of having a 'son' rather than a 'daughter' is still there in most parts of the country, especially the small towns! Do you agree with this ? Did you also want a 'baby boy' when you were pregnant? Why do you think our society has this preference for having sons & how can it be changed?

My mother in law once said that I'm unlucky that's why I gave birth to a daughter. But I'm happy to have 100 daughters if they are healthy

no,it doesn't matter whether you have a girl or boy both are equal,the difference is only in people's mind if they change the way they think everything gonna be possible,as a human being I always took stand for what is right or what is wrong nd gender equality..
nd I always want to participate nd stand for gender equality because we can change it today ,there is no word like tomorrow for changing anything,
it's my request to all the parents nd people to love there child whether it is girl or boy .every child deserves love..
THANK YOU FOR GIVING A CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITY LIKE THIS.

It does not matter at all... Whether it is boy or girl... Both are our child....our blood...how does it matter on gender. Both are blessings from god.... No special preference should be given for boy or girl...

in our village it really matters..but according to Islam baby girls are born for people who are blessed.but in my opinion every family must have a baby girl and baby boy...to know the value of both daughter-in-law and son-in-law
