We at VFJ are against the dowry system. It is a system that perpetuates injustice against women. It has no place in a civilized society. We applaud Farzana Yasmin for her "principled and brave stand against the gross injustice of dowry payments" as noted in the report below.


We hope that women around the world are inspired by Farzana's example and act to free themselves from the bondage of dowry.

If you are a victim of the dowry system and/or are associated with any organization that seeks to eliminate this inhuman custom, let us know. We want to combine forces with you and banish this system for good.
