Bhopal: Bhopal’s Bitiya Club is an initiative that went on to become the inspiration for the Madhya Pradesh government’s hugely successful ‘Beti Bachaao Aandolan’.

The Bitiya Club, a club for couples with only daughters, was created to instill pride in parents and reject the false sense of pity that parents of a girl child had to often go through. Eventually, members of this club became agents of social change working for the equality of the sexes and protection of the girl child. Through weekend meetings and events, members gathered to save the girl child.

Bitiya Club member Shilpi Agnani says, “Basically the idea was to create an awareness against female foeticide because there a skewed sex ratio. We want to create an awareness and basically we want to restore the dignity of the girl child. We have seen so many cases of violence against girls now a days.”
