Harksen v Lane NO.

Standard

 

 This is a South African case. Harksen said the way she was deprived of her estate was discriminatory. Her husband died and her property was sequestered.

Her right to privacy and property were violated. There was an outdated view of marriage which worked to the disadvantage of females.

She is entitled to human dignity.
