Register & Shop with a Purpose
While you shop, we are committed to life outside our cyber walls. We know that while dowry traditions have been outlawed they are still practiced in more than a dozen countries and pose a real threat to girls and women.
The Dowry challenges historical dowry practices by generating awareness of the ongoing abuse created by conventional dowry practices. We focus on supporting education because with it comes opportunity, choice, and freedom.
