This article highlights the gender  inequality that currently exists in land ownership in Zambia. Zambia currently has two land tenure systems, both of which are relic of the colonial era. In both of these systems, majority of the land ownership is along patriarchal lines.  Research has shown that the attainment of  women's land rights can and could possibly contribute to the social and economic development of a country. This article highlights how Medici Land Governance is helping make that possible through it's Sytematic Land Titling programme in accordance to The National Land Titling Programme Launched by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources in 2014 under Honorable Jean Kapata (former Minister).
