Abstract

    The research talks about the framework of property rights and inheritance that prevailed in Britain for a long time,  In which the rights of the woman, especially the married woman, to ownership and inheritance and all other related rights such as the right of custody, voting and others were taken away, after it was decided according to the law of custom of coverage that the woman and her husband become one indivisible entity, which meant the demise of her existence and legal entity and allowed the transfer of all her rights and property To her husband, the research also dealt with the most important laws that removed that concept, such as the law of 1870, the law of 1882, the law of 1922. Etc..
