International Daughters’ Day: History
Although there is no actual origin of how this day came into existence, in most countries including India, the girl child has been perceived as a liability, and traditionally a boy is preferred by the families. Issues like dowry, female infanticide, and foeticide even exist to date. Therefore, a day designated to them was introduced to burst the stigma and tackle crimes against the girl child.
