Dowry murders in India

I thought this was an engrossing read. India has a number of particular cultural norms that end up with disempowered women who are often beaten and killed by their husbands and in-laws.

I have to imagine nearly all of us have felt the sting of being treated as “less than” by others — whether that’s based on our looks, our intellect, our money, or our abilities.

I read this stuff and I think about what needs to change in my culture of the US to bring everyone up, even just a little bit.

For an enlightened, spiritual country - with generally friendly people - it's always intrigued me how they subjugate one and other.
