Abstract

Hindu social system based on Smritis and Shrutis placed women at lowest strata of society, denied her all basic rights. The plight of Hindu woman was a result of discrimination practiced against her. Undoubtedly, colonial rule has made sizeable scope available to done away with the practices of discrimination, denial, deprivation of Hindu women. However, in independent India, discourse of equality to rise up strata of Hindu women was resisted by mainstream leadership. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, had close concern with this cause, he brought Hindu code Bill and fought the battle for right of Hindu women in succession at the cost of his position in cabinet. He generated the discourse of women equality; legal sanctity to women succession. The mainstream leaders were resisting it on the basis of religious mandates. Of late, the government passed the Hindu Succession Act, but, provisions for women succession were absent. Subsequently, amendments were carried out therein and provisions pertaining to women successions were incorporated based on the arguments of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.

Key Words
