This is a list of films about female foeticide:

Biyan, R (2012) Me and My Sister [Online] available from <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=940jvITrrP4>

Suri, F (2015) For What Sin Was She Killed? [Online] available from <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1iiuQR1Um0&t>

Yadav,S (2016) Gudiya [Online] available from <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbCdIK_um5M>

I could not find many films on the topic suggesting it is not publicised much in the media. I have not been able to find any films on female foeticide in English, apart from Me and My Sister, which has been remade in English due to the success of the female foeticide episode on Satyamev Jayate.

Satyamev Jayate is an Indian “TV show that discusses and provides possible solutions to address social issues in India.” Series 1, episode 1 on 6th May 2012 discuss the issue of female foeticide.

I found this episode very inspirational as we heard the personal stories of the victims and they were honestly touching; after watching this episode we decided that we want to create a media text (in English) that would raise awareness of the issue, making an impact on the world.
