Abstract

This paper is divided into three broad parts. The first section details the contemporary rights of women under all religious personal laws. In the second part a brief history of the origin of the concept of religious personal laws is followed by an argument that the goal of gender justice can be better achieved by law reform. In the third section I develop an argument for legal change.
