2021 Prajnya 16 Days Campaign: The Dowry Act at 60: A Review Panel
2021 marks 60 years since the passage of The Dowry Prohibition Act in 1961. In 60 years, we have forgotten its existence and importance, even as the practice of dowry spreads to newer groups and ostentation becomes the norm at weddings. Once more, we find ourselves needing to highlight this custom and its consequences.

This review panel features: Akila R (Advocate); Bharati Sharma (Activist, Shakthi Shalini) and Professor Sharada Srinivasan (University of Guelph). The panel will be facilitated by senior journalist, Ammu Joseph.
