Pamposh Raina has posted this interesting item on the New York Times “India Blog”: For Indian Women, Divorce is a Raw Deal (March 22, 2012).  The piece links to the Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill 2010 now pending before the Parliament in India, and notes a research study to be published later this year on the economics rights of separated and divorced women in India. The report found that more than 80 percent of  the 400 women surveyed blamed cruelty or domestic violence for the marital  split.
