      This is a study of attitudes toward the dowry system among married women in the northern province of Bihar (N = 4,), in which the dowry has strong roots in tradition. Hypotheses regarding antecedents involving attachment to tradition, exposure to modernizing influences, and self-interest were developed. Subsequent amendments were made including Section A of the Indian Penal Code introduced in , focussing not only on dowry deaths but also cases of cruelty to married women by their in-laws.

      Dowry-related violence is a serious problem that affects the lives of women and girls. Dowry includes gifts, money, goods, or property given from the bride’s family to the groom or in-laws before, during or any time after the marriage. Domestic Violence Against Women: Legal violence dowry dowry death economic elder elderly equality evidence exist fact father female force further gender girl give given Government harassment held High Hindu human husband incident increase India injury issue justice living Magistrate maintenance male marriage married means mental mother.

        For Muslim women and Christian women, the rights are even less. In fact, the Rajiv Gandhi government while in power in passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Divorce) Act just to nullify the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Shah Bano Case which had ordered the husband to provide maintenance money to his divorced wife, Shah Bano. The dowry, which is a sum of money given to a bride’s family by the groom’s family after a wedding, proved to the family that Niloufar had been married off before her execution. In total, the family received the equivalent of $5 for their daughter’s life.
