WOMEN'S LEGAL RIGHTS

In a society, which reveres the symbol of the mother, natural guardianship is not awarded as an absolute right to the mother, once the child crosses a certain age. Due to pre-eminence given by society to religious laws, discriminatory practices against women still exist. Despite progressive legislations in the past addressing women’s legal rights, much remains to be done before women find an equal standing in Indian society.
