Muslim Women in India (February 1999)
A4, 44pp, ISBN 1 897693 47 8
Opportunities for Muslim women in India to raise their concerns over access to education rights and work opportunities, or to raise issues within Muslim personal law – including marriage, divorce and personal freedoms – are often severely restricted. MRG’s Report discusses both the historical and contemporary position of Muslim women in India and within their own communities and their involvement in the wider women’s movements. The author further discusses the effects of the rise of the Hindu right-wing on Muslim women’s rights and freedoms.
