Have the incidences of dowry decreased with the spread of education among women?Dowry has always been a social evil prevalent in India and from time to time various measures are adopted by all concerned including the Government to eradicate this social menace.
Of late , I have noticed that cases of demand of exorbitant dowry, harassment of brides for dowry or the dowry death have decreased. Is it really so and is it somehow related to the spread of education among women?
Still, in Indian societies, the people label a dowryless marriage as a love marriage. The women after getting educated, get gainful employment also and therefore welcomed while settling matrimonial alliances.
