History Of Daughter’s Day

There has always been a misconception about daughters. People kill fetuses of daughters in want of a son. This is the situation in almost all developing and backward countries. The United Nations came out to bridge the gap between the boys and girls in the society and for the first time on 11 October 2012, a day was dedicated for girls. Since then, one day has been dedicated for daughters in every country. Daughters Day is celebrated on different days in every country.
