Dr. Gita Rajan was interviewed for the program, “All Things Considered,” about a very important pilot study that she oversaw with Fr. Richard Ryscavage, S.J. Led by Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life, the pilot study, is very different from past studies that were exclusively quantitative in nature. Fairfield University’s innovative survey included qualitative components to better understand how gender dynamics and family pressures in India lead to the birth of a significantly greater number of boys than girls.
