Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men
There are over 160 million females "missing" from Asia's population. That's more than the entire female population of the United States. And gender imbalance - which is mainly the result of sex selective abortion - is no longer strictly an Asian problem. From Azerbaijan to the United States, couples are making sure at least one of their children is a son.
The World Affairs Council presents Mara Hvistendahl, author of Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men, who will share the story of 163 million missing women and the security, economic, human rights, and social implications of an unnatural global gender imbalance.
