Endangered Daughters: Paperback: Routledge: 9780415247658: 29 Dec 2000: This work asks the controversial question of why millions of girls do not appear to be surviving to adulthood in contemporary Asia. It investigates the extent of discrimination against female children in Asia and shifts the focus of attention firmly from son-preference to daughter-discrimination. This unique and groundbreaking book seeks to re-focus gender debate onto the issue of daughter discrimination - a phenomenon still hidden and unacknowledged across the world. It asks the controversial question of why millions of girls do not appear to be surviving to adulthood in contemporary Asia. In the first major study available of this emotive and sensitive issue, Elisabeth Croll investigates the extent of discrimination against female children in Asia and shifts the focus of attention firmly from son-preference to daughter-discrimination. This book brings together demographic data and anthropological field studies to reveal the multiple ways in which girls are disadvantaged, from excessive child mortality to the withholding of health care and education on the basis of gender. Focusing especially on China and India, the book reveals the surprising coincidence of increasing daughter discrimination with rising economic development, declining fertility and the generally improved status of women in East and South Asia. Essential reading for all those interested in gender in contemporary society. Gender Studies: Women, , , , , , , , , , , ,, [PU: Routledge]

Details of the book
Endangered Daughters: Discrimination and Development in Asia

This unique and groundbreaking book examines the reasons why large numbers of women seem to be "missing" from the populations of countries across Asia. Bringing together demographic data and anthropological field studies to paint a vivid picture of the social costs of daughter discrimination across Asia today, "Endandered Daughters" reveals the multiple ways in which girls are disadvantaged, from excessive child mortality to the withholding of health care and education on the basis of gender. It argues that the increasing availability of sex-identification technologies will serve to supplement older forms of infanticide and neglect. Focusing especially on China and India, this compelling account reveals the surprising coincidence of increasing daughter discrimination with rising economic development, declining fertility and the generally improved status of women in East and South Asia.
