In which countries do women feel “equal.”


Below is a chart which purports to show where women feel that they lack equality.

The infographic below shows the countries where women disagree that they “have full equality with men and freedom to reach their full dreams and aspirations.” Spain had the highest level of disagreement (73 percent), followed by Japan (67 percent) and South Korea (64 percent). Russian women were far less inclined to disagree with that statement.

There is virtually a worldwide genocide being perpetrated on little girls. I feel a particular grievance because a diagnostic technique that I helped to develop is a significant contributor to the horrifying facts below (and China is only surpassed by India in the carnage). I have previously posted the information below.

It is estimated that 160 million females are “missing” because of sex-selective abortion. And, I am ever so sad to report that female infanticide is also common. The footnote below was too horrifying to include in the text of this post. It was reported in the Economist, so it is likely accurate. If you can read it without tears coming to your eyes it is time to have your moral compass repaired!

The numbers used to calculate female fetal and infant sex selected deaths are accurate. How can you know that, ask you? Because, answer I, the ratio of male to female births is a number like the time it takes for the Earth to revolve once around its axis – we know this number PRECISELY! We can very accurately extrapolate how many females are “missing” from a population from this ratio. The computation is horrifying.

Millions of years of evolution have resulted in a male/female birth ratios that results in a young adult population of a virtually one-to-one male/female ratio (slightly more males than females are conceived — Y-bearing sperm swim a bit faster than X-bearing sperm — but males are more likely to die as fetuses or babies than females). Thus, by the reproductive years, we achieve, as a species, a ratio that is virtually one-to-one. In a brief 14-year span, charted below, we see than more that 24 million female fetuses were selectively chosen for abortion.

China in 2020 will have 30m-40m more men of this age than young women. For comparison, there are 23m boys below the age of 20 in Germany, France and Britain combined. American boys and young men are also around 40m. So within ten years, China faces the prospect of having the equivalent of the whole young male population of America, or almost twice that of Europe’s three largest countries, with little prospect of marriage, untethered to a home of their own and without the stake in society that marriage and children provide. (Someone should bring the significance of that statement to young, black American males – maybe Al Sharpton.)

Sex-selected abortions are illegal in China and India, the two most egregious offenders, but since it is almost impossible to prove that an abortion has been carried out for reasons of sex selection, the practice remains widespread. An ultrasound scan costs about $12, which is within the scope of many—perhaps most—Chinese and Indian families. In one hospital in Punjab, in northern India, the only girls born after a round of ultrasound scans had been mistakenly identified as boys, or else had a male twin. God forgive them and help them.

The graph above should be viewed with the fact that any ratio greater than 105/100 is proof positive of sex-selected abortion of female fetuses.

I can “hear” you think, “Those barbaric, backward nations!” You will be chagrined to learn that the United States of America is not blameless.

Some key highlights of that study include:

  • Aside from the well-known case of China… sex-selective abortion is prevalent across cultures and nations.

  • One major study that analyzed U.S. Census data from 2000 found that third births in families of foreign-born Chinese, Indians, and Koreans in the U.S. who already had two daughters displayed a ratio of 151 boys to 100 girls—an extreme male-biased ratio.

  • Within the last 20 years, the sex ratio at birth of Asian-Pacific populations in the U.S. and U.K. has climbed sharply, resulting in highly unbalanced ratios in favor of males. Such a noticeable change in recent decades implicates the increased use of sex-selective abortion.


This tragedy will have remarkably deleterious effects in the years to come. The practice in not only evil, it is idiotic, imbecilic and ignorant! The person who warned, “Don’t fool with Mother Nature,” knew of what he/she spoke!

Footnote: The worldwide war on baby girls, The Economist

XINRAN XUE, a Chinese writer, describes visiting a peasant family in the Yimeng area of Shandong province. The wife was giving birth. “We had scarcely sat down in the kitchen,” she writes (see article), “when we heard a moan of pain from the bedroom next door…The cries from the inner room grew louder—and abruptly stopped. There was a low sob, and then a man’s gruff voice said accusingly: ‘Useless thing!’

“Suddenly, I thought I heard a slight movement in the slops pail behind me,” Miss Xinran remembers. “To my absolute horror, I saw a tiny foot poking out of the pail. The midwife must have dropped that tiny baby alive into the slops pail! I nearly threw myself at it, but the two policemen [who had accompanied me] held my shoulders in a firm grip. ‘Don’t move, you can’t save it, it’s too late.’

“‘But that’s…murder…and you’re the police!’ The little foot was still now. The policemen held on to me for a few more minutes. ‘Doing a baby girl is not a big thing around here,’ [an] older woman said comfortingly. ‘That’s a living child,’ I said in a shaking voice, pointing at the slops pail. ‘It’s not a child,’ she corrected me. ‘It’s a girl baby, and we can’t keep it. Around these parts, you can’t get by without a son. Girl babies don’t count.’”

    Think the question is bogus. What does “equal” really mean?

    My heart is broken.

    I agree with you guys that this really is a tragedy. Born of ignorance, the idea that women are only fit for certain work, etc. Ironically, the demographic imbalance in countries like China and India will mean that those girls who are born and grow up to be women will probably have better prospects in life than their male counterparts, simply due to supply and demand. But people grounded in traditional values replete with sexism, superstition, and so on, and living in poverty, generally can’t see this truth.
