    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
