Top Definition
To kill an infant because they are female.
In some cultures males are more highly regarded and valued than females, which can cause female infanticide i.e. China 2007 maintains a rule, the One Child Policy, that you can only have one child, or be severely penalized for having more than one child.

Hindu's and Muslim's have a long tradition of females having to be married with a dowry, which can lead to poorer families committing female infanticide.
