  6. 6. Female Infanticides Dowryharassment Child Marriage 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 2012 Slogans 1.

  7. 7. Female Infanticides DowryHarassment Child marriage 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.
