The World's Endangered Gender

For many, the news of a newborn girl is met with gifts and pink showers of celebration. But in some places in the world—especially in areas like China and India— the prospect of a baby girl is met with fear, abandonment and, ultimately, their disposal. On Saturday, Feb. 16, Regent University's School of Law hosted five distinguished speakers during the Endangered Gender symposium. The panel explored the impact gendercide has had on the global male to female ratio.

The symposium was sponsored by the Regent Journal of Law & Public Policy and the Regent Journal of International Law. According to Regent Law professor Lynne Marie Kohm, who served as moderator for the panel, 160 million female children are "missing" from the world as a result of gendercide. She said that sex-selective abortion is an issue that will need to be acknowledged by future litigators, and its solutions pursued by "9-1-1 global rescuers."

Faculty Highlight: Professor Bruce N. Cameron

Bruce Cameron, Reed Larson Professor of Labor Law, brings to the classroom a lifetime of experience working at the forefront of litigation surrounding compulsory unionism and Right to Work issues.

Cameron is a distinguished attorney with the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation and is widely considered a pioneer in the area of religious liberty for employees whose faith prohibits them from supporting labor unions.
