Scholar Rita Banerji analyzes this important question in terms of the horrifying treatment of women, which she proves fits the definition of genocide: abortion of girls, female infanticide, child brides, dowry murders, honor killings, and neglect of girls' health and education since they will join another family when they marry. She reviews the "yo-yo" history of religion in India from celebrating sexuality to abhorring it to find a precedent for picking equality and a healthy acknowledgement of human sexuality--Tantra was based on equality and balance between female and male, Shakti and Shiva. Her campaign to bring female genocide to public outcry is explained at [...], including a petition to sign. If you're interested in Indian religion, attitudes towards women and sexuality, and future, you'll learn a lot from reading Sex and Power, a very powerful and important book.Gayle Kimball, Ph.D.
