FOCUS AREA 2: ACCESS TO RESOURCES IN A RELATIONSHIP
The Women's Legal Centre seeks to have all relationships recognised before the law, including religious and customary marriages and domestic partnerships. We will take up cases to ensure that women receive a fair share of the assets of the partnership on dissolution of a partnership, whether by death or separation.
This involves ensuring that all partnerships are legally recognised, irrespective of religion and custom.
The advocacy work we do in this focus in a relationship plays a pivotal role in our litigation strategy, especially in regards to the Recognition of Muslim Marriages. It has become critical for us to mobilise as much support as possible by those affected as well as creating awareness with the public.
