Female foeticide, who is responsible male or female?

This type of question is a challenging one in many ways.  The first is that it is challenging to try to wrap our minds around the concept of aborting a fetus on the basis of gender.  Once we have been able to comprehend or at least grasp this horrifying reality, trying to assign blame is even more challenging.  Part of this disturbing trend is enhanced by cultural or traditional notions of the good.  Many believe it to be a cultral virtue for a woman to serve as mother to a son, temple sacrifices and intense prayer accompany this.  There is little in way of religious edict that embraces female foeticide, but this is how culture and tradition have been interpreted.  In terms of who is responsible for these perceptions, both genders have to share in believing in such misreads and thus the practice of female foeticide would be something that has to fall on the shoulders of both genders.  However, if one were to engage in deep-seeded analysis, it becomes clear that the Establishment of such “traditional” or “cultural” notions were not done at women’s behest for they lacked the authoritative voice for the most part.  These edicts or assertions were created by individuals in the position of social power, of which men assumed such a role.
