Muslim Divorce Decision — India
In August 2017, India’s Supreme Court found it unconstitutional for a man to divorce his wife just by saying — or texting — the word talaq three times. Women activists say this type of divorce is not in the Koran, which prescribes a slow process with mediation; but the patriarchal religious leadership that controls India’s Muslim personal law insists that this tradition is part of religion and cannot be changed. A plaintiff and four women activists discuss the ensuing struggle and how they want it to be resolved
