Female foeticide is the act
of aborting a foetus because it is female. This is a
major problem in India and has cultural
connections with the dowry system that is
ingrained in Indian culture, despite the fact that it
has been prohibited. In India a strong preference
for sons over daughters exists, unlike in Western
cultures. People realise smaller family sizes with
relatively greater number of sons through the use
of medical technologies. Pregnancies are planned
by resorting to 'differential contraception'
contraception is used based on the number of
surviving sons irrespective of family size.
Following conception, foetal sex is determined
by prenatal diagnostic techniques after which
female foetuses are aborted. Foetal sex
determination and sex-selective abortion by
medical professionals has grown into a 1,000
crore industry . Since 1991, 80% of districts in
India have recorded an increasingly masculine
sex ratio with the state of Punjab having the most
masculine sex ratio. According to the Indian
census, the sex ratio in the 0-6 age group in India
went from 104.0 males per 100 females in 1981,
to 105.8 in 1991, to 107.8 in 2001, to 109.4 in

A Dowry is a process whereby
parental property is distributed
to a daughter at her marriage. A
dowry establishes some variety
of conjugal fund, the nature of
which may vary widely. This
fund ensures her support in
widowhood and eventually goes
to provide for her sons and
daughters. Dowry contrasts with
the related concepts called bride
price and dower. While bride
price is a payment by the groom
or his family to the bride's
parents, direct dowry is the
wealth transferred from bride's
family to groom and groom's
family, ostensibly for the bride.
Dowry is an ancient custom, and
its existence may well predate
records of it. Disputes related to
dowry often result in domestic
violence, such as dowry deaths.

restrict the practice of child marriage. It was
enacted on 1 April 1930, extended across the
whole nation, with the exceptions of the states
of Jammu and Kashmir, and applied to every
Indian citizen. Its goal was to eliminate the
dangers placed on young girls who could not
handle the stress of married life and avoid early
deaths. This Act defined a male child as 21 years
or younger, a female child as 18 years or
younger, and a minor as a child of either sex 18
years or younger. The punishment for a male
between 18 and 21 years marrying a child
