Abstract
This thesis explores the impact of Muslim family law on women’s right to equality and freedom of religion. After examining the case studies of Canada, India and South Africa, the conclusion is that assimilating, accommodating or integrating Muslim family law within secular societies provides inadequate protection for women’s right to equality. As a better means of protecting women’s right to equality, the proposal is the adoption of a Gender-Nuanced Integration approach.
