GENDERCIDE WATCH seeks to confront acts of gender-selective mass killing
around the world. We believe that such atrocities against ordinary men
and women constitute one of humanity's worst blights, and one of its
greatest challenges in the new millennium.
GENDERCIDE WATCH is working to raise awareness, conduct research, and
produce educational resources on gendercide. In particular, we seek to
dispel stereotypes that blame victims and survivors for their own
suffering. Among our activities is the maintenance of this website,
www.gendercide.org, which represents our major means of outreach and
public education. This site includes a constantly growing data-base of
case-studies and other research materials on gendercide.
GENDERCIDE WATCH seeks contacts and affiliations with scholars and
students, activists, and other individuals who share our concerns and will
allow us to learn and benefit from their diverse efforts. We manage a
moderated mailing-list that links concerned individuals and institutions
in many countries. This list allows staff and subscribers to issue
"urgent action" notices as cases of gendercide arise, and to provide word
of important available resources. You can subscribe to the mailing list through this page (see above).
GENDERCIDE WATCH is a project of the Gender Issues Education Foundation (GIEF), a registered charitable foundation based in Edmonton, Alberta. We devote the
bulk of our resources to maintaining and expanding the website and its
data-base of case-studies; translating these materials into Spanish and, we hope, French; producing printed materials and multimedia projects; and sharing information with policymakers, mass media, and non-governmental organizations worldwide.
Our survival and growth depends on contributions from individuals,
institutions, and foundations. Please be as generous as your
circumstances permit. All contributions are tax-deductible in Canada and
many other countries; a tax receipt will be issued.
Another way that visitors can support Gendercide Watch is by ordering books through Amazon or Chapters. Our case-study recommendations for "further reading" are linked to both these companies, and we receive a percentage of the sale price of whatever books are ordered -- even if they are not among those on our further-reading list. Simply going through a GW link every time you order from Amazon or Chapters will ensure that we receive important revenue to sustain our project.
