Group Description

50 million missing (photos only of Indian women and girls). Get yours at bighugelabs.com/flickr


This is a Campaign to increase International awareness about the millions of women that have been eliminated from India's population. To be on our mailing list please send your name and email to 50millionmissing@gmail.com

Due to a traditional preference for sons, daughters are regularly dispensed with through selective abortions and the practice of infanticide. The medical journal Lancet recently announced that about a 1000,000 female fetuses are aborted in India each year. In the state of Kerala, India's most literate state, it is estimated that about 25000 new born infant girls are annually killed. The figures of female infanticide in Bihar are far worse. There, mid-wives admit to being paid to kill at least half of all baby girls they birth. It is also estimated that at least 25000 women are annually murdered by their in-laws and husbands, after being subject to extended physical and mental torture for reasons of dowry.

This is India's silent genocide, and it is time for it to STOP.

This website was initially started with idea that each of the 50 million "missing" women be represented by a photograph of Indian women or girls engaged in various activities of life. However, since this is an awareness campaign, we encourage anyone who visits this site and supports our cause to please join as member, even if you submit no photos. Each membership strengthens our cause.

We of course welcome your comments and question in the discussion section.

Submitting your photos: Because of the culturally specific nature of the issue, we only accept photos that have Indian women or girls as their main subject, of any age, and community represented as portraits or shown as engaged in various activities -- which is life. It would help very much if there is a small personal commentary with the photo about the girl or woman, so we can reverse the process of dehumanizing Indian women.

Please also feel free to submit your posters, songs and videos inspired by our campaign.

"Seen At": If you are browsing through the stream, please use the code provided (below) for 'SEEN AT 50 MILLION MISSING,' for photos you view, so we can have an idea of the frequency of viewership on this stream.

if you comment a pic you should add:
