About Me

Author, gender activist, and photographer. I am the founder of The 50 Million Missing Campaign (www.50millionmissing.info) which is working to end the ongoing female genocide/gendercide in India. Please support our petition for the enforcement of laws to stop this genocide. My book 'Sex and Power: Defining History, Shaping Societies," (www.sexandpower.info) has been released by Penguin Books, India and Penguin Global. It looks at how the social history and traditions of India have shaped the power relationship between the genders in India today, and is at the root of the massive ongoing female genocide. For more please visit my website www.ritabanerji.com Reading, Writing, Photography, Music, the Environment, Global Justice To stay true to my self no matter how hard things get. Conservation Biologist, Writer (Penguin), Photographer and Ethnic Cooking

My Vision

An end to female genocide in India!
