Justice still eludes Indian Women in the 21st Century


  • V. S. Elizabeth National Law School of India University




For anyone who has been keeping track of the legal developments in the United States of America, one of the issues of greatest concern is the overturning of Roe v. Wade[1] and with it, all the gains made by the feminist movement regarding Women’s Reproductive Rights and more importantly women’s right to their bodies. On the other hand, in India, there have been so many more issues, from Muslim women’s struggle against triple talaq in one sitting[2], to the need for a Uniform Civil Code, to criminalising rape in the context of marriage[3], laws to regulate surrogacy[4] etc., that have caused concern, but not the right to abortion as in the US.[5]   One of the positive legal developments is the 106th Amendment Act, passed as recently as 29th September 2023
