In a country where having a boy is preferred over having a girl, a small village in India has caught global attention with a contradictory tradition.The village of Piplantri plants 111 trees for every girl that is born. Along with the trees parents are required to sign an affidavit that states their daughter will receive proper education and will not marry until she is of legal age. Piplantri is a beacon of hope for young women in India and their celebration of women shows the world just how valuable they are to society.
