Bridging the Divide between Land Policy and Practice. Securing women’s land rights through engendering the formalization process of customary land tenure in Uganda: Uganda Community Based Association for Women and Children’s welfare
The 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda is one of the most gender sensitive constitutions in the world, with clear provisions for promoting and protecting the rights of women. This is also the case in relation to women’s land rights – the Constitution clearly vests land in the people of Uganda, including the rights of women to own and inherit land. Other land laws, including the Land Act, recognize and uphold women’s rights to land as individuals, and as part of a family or community.
