Equal Stakes

India Today - - SNAPSHOTS - By Gun­jeet Sra

The All In­dia Demo­cratic Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion ( AIDWA) is try­ing hard to get women equal rights af­ter di­vorce by chal­leng­ing the Mar­riage Laws ( Amend­ment) Bill, 2010 and the amend­ments made to it, that make ir­re­triev­able break­down of mar­riage a ground for di­vorce, giv­ing women the right to mar­i­tal as­sets, in­clud­ing the mar­i­tal home. The AIDWA de­mands that the amend­ments be in­tro­duced only af­ter a law has been en­acted for giv­ing women equal rights in mar­i­tal prop­erty.
