Agunah (to be anchored or chained) - the condition where a Jewish woman cannot remarry as her husband has not given her a divorce (get). Often, the denial of woman's human rights is based on religious law. Traditionally, only a Jewish man can initiate divorce proceedings. Hence an agunah is a woman whose husband has refused her a divorce. She is unable to remarry, though he is permitted to, and any future children she had would be considered mamzerim (a legal category of persons who may not marry except among themselves).
