Abstract

Baroness Cox’s six-year campaign to address the plight of British Muslim women was dealt a mighty blow on 11 March 2016. The date had marked a historic occasion for Cox and her supporters. Her Private Member’s Bill had been scheduled to receive its first debate in the House of Commons, after failing to pass through the House of Lords four times in a row since it was first introduced in 2011. Due to a busy parliamentary timetable, however, it was not discussed. In light of the current public review of Shariah tribunals (the first of its kind), it is a pertinent opportunity to reflect on the rise and fall of Cox’s Bill since its introduction in 2011, particularly since it has been reintroduced for the sixth consecutive time in the current parliamentary session.
