Why is dowry still a problem in the tamil society?

Dowry is not only being given and received in countries like Sri Lanka and India but also among diaspora Tamils. In the earlier years, women did not get the same opportunities to study or to work, these were some of the reasons why dowry was given and received at that time. The situation is no longer the same, today women are equally participating in education as well as in the labour market. In this given situation, why did dowry still not disappear in the Tamil society? Why do women still experience torture because of dowry? Why do parents of women still become debtors because of dowry? Many of us have similar, unanswered questions running in our minds. Therefore, the purpose of this video is to try to find an answer for some of these questions.
