A social media campaign about the plight of a 91-year-old widow litigating for over 50 years for share in her late husband's property has brought to the fore numerous issues and problems women continue to face in getting their inheritance in property across Pakistan.
September 7th, 2020; By Rehan Piracha; LAHORE: The Enforcement of Women’s Property Rights Act 2020 will be ineffective as it will prolong litigation for women deprived of their inheritance. The Act empowers the Federal Ombudsperson of Prevention of Harassment of Women at Workplace to hear complaints of women who have been deprived of their inheritance but the other party can move the civil court, thereby aggrieved women will have to pursue simultaneous litigation.
