ILC launches reports on action-oriented research on 2011 International Women's Day | Land Portal
 

Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women's Day has become a global day of recognition and celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future across developed and developing countries alike.
In honour of the suffragettes, IWD 2011 celebrates women's success and reminds us of inequities still to be redressed.
 
A lot has changed for the better for women in the 100 years since the first International Women's Day in 1911. Legislation is more gender-sensitive than ever and attitudes towards women's equality and emancipation have shifted significantly - yet unfortunately, despite such progress, true equality for women remains elusive.
 
This is particularly evident for women in rural areas, who continue to lack control over land and other natural resources because they are women. They have fewer benefits and protections under legal systems than men, carry heavier work burdens and are largely excluded from decision-making. In short, the mismatch between increasing recognition of women's role as farmers and the continued discrimination of rural women persists.
 
Over the last three years, ILC has carried out a project entitled "Securing Women's Access to Land: Linking Research and Action" in Eastern and Southern Africa with support from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The project aimed at learning from grassroots women and promoting a transformative agenda for women's land rights and at its core of the project, more than 20 partners in 7 countries undertook action-oriented research with the support of two partner institutions, the Makerere Institute for Social Research (MISR) in Uganda and the Institute of Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) in South Africa.
 
Crucial to this project was the idea that research processes and outputs are not ends in themselves, but used for advocacy, including locally with traditional authorities and nationally with policy-makers - and this advocacy is continuing beyond this project.
 
The project has generated reports for each action-oriented research project, synthesis reports and policy briefs, the first set of which are now available for download.
