Description :

This report looks into the relationship between women’s property rights in the context of HIV/AIDS, violence against women, and food security. It discusses the unequal power relations that often occur in land ownership, as many cultures perpetuate gender inequality by not allowing women to own land as a mechanism to become autonomous. It discusses how these rights are protected by international standards and require enforcement.
