Throughout sub-Saharan Africa, women’s rights to own, inherit, and control property are under constant attack from discriminatory laws and customs. These violations perpetuate women’s inequality, undermine the fight against HIV/AIDS, and doom development efforts. This report documents women’s property rights abuses in Kenya, where the raging HIV/AIDS epidemic magnifies the devastation of property rights violations.
