The study shall briefly analyse the track of women rights under the various family laws in force in India, post and pre independence. The article will encompass a summary of Hindu, Christian & Mohammedan laws which are advantageous & disadvantageous to women & their rights including: property, succession , unilateral divorce & pay of alimony. It will also highlight the rights of daughters & widows where inheritance is concerned. The conclusion will detail the possibility of UCC serving greater rights to women. I chose this topic, as I strongly believe that gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls is not just a goal in itself, but a key to sustainable development, economic growth and peace and security .Protecting women’s rights makes the world a better place.
