The Harvest: Two Years After Khol - An Analytical Study
Egyptian women's experience of new khol provisions, as discussed in this book, act not only as a future warning for those seeking to expand women's access to divorce in other Muslim contexts. It also confirms what legal rights activists in Pakistan have known for many years since case law firmly established khol as a right available to the wife without the husband's permission in 1967. The problems and inequities experienced by women in Pakistan and legal activists' analysis of the profoundly unjust nature of khol as it has been applied in real life are remarkably similar to those in Egypt.
