Zambia Tackles Gender Parity in Land Reforms

Cultural practices and customary laws in SADC limit women's ability to access, own and control means of production such as land and livestock, argues Gender Links

Rights organisation, Gender Links, says that, "Cultural practices and customary laws in Southern Africa Development Committee (SADC) limit women's ability to access, own and control means of production such as land and livestock."
 
The organisation believes that the inability by women to access means of production has had an impact on their economic independence and ability to move out of poverty.
 
Statistics indicate that women's access to land for food production is critical to the welfare of the entire region as women are primarily responsible for maintaining households.
