An Indian girl carries water for cleaning utensils, in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012. In India, where there are 914 girls under age 6 for every 1,000 boys, discrimination happens through abortions of female fetuses and sheer neglect of young girls, despite years of high-profile campaigns to address the issue. Every few years, federal and state governments announce new incentives, from free meals to free education, to encourage people to take care of their girls. (AP Photo/Mahesh Kumar A.)
