Plenty of literature has been written on discrimination faced by women in securing equal property rights. Law has been used to justify and embolden male domination and ensure property rights remain exclusive to men. This paper will delve into the rights of Hindu, Muslim and Christian women while first examining the connection between property, power and women’s position in society. Secondly, posting that social reforms along with legal reforms in property rights are prerequisites to secure women’s empowerment and the overall socio-political and economic development of society.
