    More people have begun to condemn the practice, describing it as dehumanizing because it seems to commodify women. Such critical voices can be heard across Africa and include scholars, feminists, religious leaders, public intellectuals, artists and activists.

    In South Africa, young women are voicing their concerns about the bride price, known there as lobola. Some are even demanding it be abolished, while others try to bypass the exorbitant costs by cohabitating with their partners rather than going through the traditional marriage rites. Lobola negotiations can take months, and the payment is often in the form of cows. Ten cows are typically the standard minimum.
