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,, 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.
