Abstract: he recent dowry murder of Divya, a chartered account in Tamil Nadu, has stirred up a storm. Another recent event was the suicide of the IIT-Delhi research scholar Manjula Davak. Her father was quoted as saying, “It was a mistake to educate my daughter and send her to IIT. I should have saved all the money for her dowry.” These, and many such women, were educated and capable of earning their living. They could have taken legal help to fight the dowry demands. Still, dowry became the reason for their deaths.
