Land­power

Down to Earth - - LETTERS - OMANA

This is with ref­er­ence to "Land for ladies" (July 1-15, 2014). There should be no sec­ond thoughts about the own­er­ship of prop­erty. Fam­ily prop­erty should be jointly owned by both hus­band and wife. When it comes to parental prop­erty, there is noth­ing wrong if only the daugh­ter is en­ti­tled to a share. An as­set-less woman is most of­ten a voice­less woman, es­pe­cially in ru­ral In­dia. Women must have an equal right to own­er­ship of land or other an­ces­tral prop­erty so that they live dig­ni­fied lives and do not have to de­pend on men for sup­port.
