In Africa, as elsewhere, land rights have remained a bastion of male power and privilege. Since land is a fundamental resource for improving living conditions and economic empowerment, the lack of land rights for women undermines efforts to promote gender equity and equality within a patriarchal society. The minimal transformation of women’s socio-economic position with regards to access and control of land is, in many cases, due to land reform programmes and related processes whose design or implementation is “gender neutral”.

Land is a critical resource in Kenya, having economic, social, political,
environmental and cultural significance. Kenya’s population continues to rely
on land for both subsistence and economic activities. In fact, the increase
of the population from about 20 million people in the 1960s to about 40
million currently, has put enormous pressure on land. Only a third of Kenya’s
land is arable while the rest is arid and semi-arid. With most Kenyans still

In most Developing countries only a small number of new jobs
are available in agriculture. The capital scarcity limits the
number of nonfarm jobs that can be created, because investments
costs per job are high in modern industry. Thus an effective
development policy should seek to increase the labor relative to.,
capital, to the extent that it is economically efficient.

Women in most rural communities in Africa dominate farm activities in terms of labour
supply and management. Overall, Africa's performance in terms of agricultural
production and productivity remain inadequate and the region has failed to make progress
in food security (Republic of Kenya, 2002). Therefore, successful agricultural reform
programs will require raising women's productivity. The current study examines the
existence of real evidence that women's limited access to land constitute a significant

In the last hundred years, the system has remained more or less the same, where land records are kept in paper format and majority of operations are carried out on a manual basis. The lack of a modern cadastral system has contributed to problems in land administration in the country.
