While the Spousal Rights Bill is yet to be passed into law, Justice Mariama Owusu says her view is that women’s contribution to keeping the home is their equal contribution to the marriage.

The bill seeks to gives spouses equal access to property jointly acquired during marriage and for matrimonial property to be equitably distributed between the spouses upon termination of the marriage.
