  • 6. Which cases are binding the feet of women? DOWRY • Customs influence the way people dress, eat, and in general behave; they may take on the force of moral or statute laws.“Many people give and take dowry only because their parents and ancestors had been practicing it.” RAPE CASES • A lack of public safety: Women generally aren’t protected outside their homes. The gang rape occurred in public places, and even Indian authorities. • A sluggish court system: Due to poor judiciary system no one has fear of punishment of their crime. FEMALE INFANTICIDE & SEX SELECTIVE ABORTIONS • Son-preference in Hindu cultures is largely based on the fact that men are better providers, and that sons are required for the proper performance of funeral rites • As today’s world demands dowry due to this reason girl child is consider as the burden by the parents.
