Women in the Law

Analysing Recent Developments

In the recent years, the Indian judiciary has, without any doubt, helped women make significant strides in their long and hard struggle for an equal place in the law. However, it is important to reflect on how these decisions shape the discourse around women’s place as equal citizens, and what they may mean for future legal battles.

Analysing the state of women’s rights in India is no mean feat, as struggles for gender equality have been fought for centuries, and are not likely to conclude even in the course of the coming 50 years. It is, however, critical to periodically reflect on how those tasked with upholding women’s rights in the largest democracy in the world are shaping these struggles. Recent years leading up to 2019 witnessed the judiciary, both high courts as well as the Supreme Court, engaging with arguably controversial issues, especially those lying at the intersection of non-discrimination and religious freedoms, and on most occasions, taking a view to aid uplifting the state of women’s rights in the country.
