It’s a girl! #3

February 3, 2013

A few months ago I saw the disturbing documentary about the femicide of girls in India and China called it’s a girl!

I wrote about the film and its disturbing statistics in the post: it’s a girl.

The following song is written and performed by Omekongo Dibinga. He felt compelled to say something about what is occurring in these countries.

The music may not be your cup of tea, but I love that Omekongo chose to speak up – on this very important and horrific practice.

Below is the link to the it’s a girl! site with the article about this song:

It’s a Girl Inspires Music Video by Hip Hop Artist Omekongo Dibinga

Watching this video and listening to the lyrics have made me feel very, very microscopically small…again.

What can I (we) do to help??

Deep Breath

    Educate. Learn to strive for mutually-respectful relationships, starting with ourselves…taking it slow, donate, talk with the people about our beliefs….lots to do! 🙂
