In India, Muslim men have been able to end their marriages by saying the word “Talaq” — Arabic for “divorce” — three times. They could do this in person, by letter or even over the phone.

Three Judgments, Three Takeaways
Faizan Mustafa

The constitution Bench of five judges, belonging to five different religious communities, took more than three months to author its 395-page judgment on triple divorce. The historic verdict marks a red-letter day for gender justice in India. However, even judges who held triple divorce unconstitutional based their decision on arbitrariness rather than on the discriminatory nature of triple divorce. Thus, gender justice was not the basis of the majority judgment.....

The Woman Question in the Subcontinent
Nyla Ali Khan

Nationalist discourse creates the dichotomy of the inner/ outer in order to make the sanctity of the inviolable inner domain look traditional. Nationalist writers assert that as long as the inner or spiritual distinctiveness of the culture is retained, a postcolonial nation can make the required adjustments to cope with a modern material world without losing its essential identity. The result, however, is not the orderly process of modernisation but rather the continued immiseration of women.....

They’ve allowed themselves to be used as pawns in a greater game of defamation and hobbling of the respective men they’re accusing, and their political parties....
