Before the Act of 1970, there might have been much debate as to whether the wife had made financial contributions of sufficient substance to entitle her to a share in the house. The author feels sure that registrars and judges have been acting on this view because previously there were several cases in the list each term under section 17 of the Married Women's Property Act 1882: but later, there were hardly any. Apart from these property matters, there is growing apace the move for equality, such as the Equal Pay Act 1970 and the Sex Discrimination Act 1975. They were passed so as to fulfil the obligations under the Treaty of Rome. Whenever a woman does work of equal value to a man, she is entitled to pay equal to his. Apart from these property matters, there is growing apace the move for equality.
