    As Parliamentary gender quotas have become increasingly popular, so too
    has the debate surrounding their effectiveness in enhancing women’s
    representation and gender equality in governments around the world. Women offer
    unique and important perspectives to the political process, and thus their increased
    political representation and empowerment can advance the very process of
    development. In 2003, the Rwandan government Constitutionally enacted a gender

    NGO, RCN Justice & Démocratie, with support from the International
    Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the Belgian Government. A

    In Rwanda, for many years ago, rights over land for women and female orphans were not
    recognized. The main causes were the inexistence of efficient land administration systems and
    the prevalence of traditional system of land tenure which were complex and did not favor
    women and female descendants. In 2004, the Government of Rwanda had adopted a new land
    policy which was complemented by the 2005 Organic Land Law and a series of laws and
    regulations with regard to access to land, land management perspectives, and to the modalities

    In setting out principles and internationally agreed standards, the “Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land and Other Natural Resources” intend to provide practical guidance to states, civil society and the private sector on responsible governance of tenure. The Voluntary Guidelines (VG) will constitute a framework for policies, legislation and programs, but will not establish legally binding obligations nor replace existing national or international laws, treaties or agreements (FAO 2009c).

But it is important to realise that conflicts also offer an opportunity for change in which gender stereotypes shift and gender roles and identities can be renegotiated. Did genocide and civil war in Rwanda lead to new opportunities for rural women?
