The dowry system was a practice which started in the medieval era where a gift in cash or kind was given to a bride by her family to maintain her independence after marriage. However, over the time the practice has become a key reason for violence against women.
Gender equality, which remains persuasive worldwide, seems to be the only way out. When girls and boys are viewed equally as rights-holders, it will promote and strengthen values that support non-violent, respectful, positive and gender-equitable relationships for all. That said, evil social practices like dowry must be uncovered and challenged. And it involves action at all levels: challenging discriminatory social norms, strengthening legislation to criminalize violence, and prosecuting the perpetrators.
