THE GLIMMERS OF EMPOWERMENT WOMEN AND LAND RIGHTS

Using feminist lenses, we bring you the lived realities of African women in Southern Africa regarding access to, control and ownership of land. Across the world, many women tell similar tales of discrimination, underpinned by cultural norms that deny women rights to land and the risks involved in seeking to secure land rights. This collection of oral herstories showcases acts of courage in the face of these obstacles, chronicling the lives of women who have dared to challenge discrimination, applied the law to protest land injustice and engaged with power holders to shift unequal power relations.
