Good morning! Respected Principal, teachers and my dear companions. I stand before you to speak on the topic – ‘Save the girl child’.
A girl child is considered as an ignored species in the male-dominated society. In many countries, people abort or kill the girl child even after there birth. Because they want a boy child.
There is discrimination in the upbringing and educating the girl-child. Most of the family funds are spent on the boys. It seems like everyone has forgotten the importance of girl’s education.
It is rightly said that: If we teach a boy, we teach a person, If we teach a girl we teach the whole family. Even the development of our country is impossible without women’s support.
The count of the number of girls is decreasing in India because we live in a gender bias society. Female foeticide is one of the common practices and evil for our society. Such issues create problems in the development of the country. People should not differentiate between a son and a daughter because they have equal rights to live in this world.
Save girl child should not only be preached but should be practised as well. Proper education should be given to both a girl child and a boy child so that they can become self-sufficient and independent.
The government has taken many initiatives such as ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. This means to save the girl child, educate the girl child. It is one of the most recent initiatives taken by the government. Apart from this many NGOs are working for the welfare of the girl child.
The need of the hour is that the government should make more policies for the girl child so that they are not considered as a burden anymore.
Moreover, people should change their attitude regarding the girl child. If we want to take our country on the path of progress and compete with other countries in the world, we should save the girl child.
