Maneka Gandhi kicks off campaign to mark 11 August as Daughters’ Day


The Ministry of Women and Child Development has launched a social media campaign to mark the Daughters Day to be celebrated on 11th August 2016 by tweeting a picture with her daughter-in-law and grand-daughter. The entire coming week will be celebrated by the Ministry of Women and Child Development as Daughters Week, as part of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao programme to check female foeticide, improve sex ratio and educate girls across the country. 

Through social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter etc, users from across the country will post photographs online with their Daughters,Daughters-in-law and Granddaughters using the hashtag #BBBPDaughtersWeek. This opportunity is being used by the Ministry to engage citizens to celebrate the young women and girls in their lives and spread the message of valuing the girl child. Last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Mann Ki Baat address had asked fathers across the country to click selfies with their daughters. The selfies were then retweeted by the PM. 

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. Name the person who has launched a social media campaign to mark the Daughters Day?
2. who is the Minister for Women and Child Development?
