The Gendercide Awareness Project wants to do an art installation in our auditorium in October to start a discussion. Gendercide is the silent elimination of females, young and old, through sex-selective abortion, infanticide, gross neglect, and for older women, lack of access to food and shelter. Today, there are 117 million women and girls missing in the world. Want more information? Read about it at their web link, below.
