Burmese Buddhist Laws of Inheritance
Posted in the Buddhism Forum

Probably the fairest laws with regards to gender in religious history. Children of both sexes have an equal right to inherit family property. This is directly opposed to Hindu and Abrahamics laws where a women is herself considered property. A Jewish woman can only inherit if there are no sons.

BURMESE BUDDHIST LAW Burmese Buddhist law, which is the body of customs and usages of the Burmese, has its sources in India, but belongs to a social system from which caste, seclusion of women, child mar riage, the joint family and other features of the Hindu system are absent. It has been collected at various times in the last boo years into books called Dhammathats, of which the Manugyk Dhammathat, compiled in A.D. 1756, overrides the others where it is clear and unambiguous.
