Married Women Gain Right To Own Land In Botswana.

Spread the love

Women’s right activists in Botswana have applauded the government’s decision to allow wives to own land, with their husbands.

This comes after President Mokgweetsi Masisi amended a 2015 land policy which stopped wives from owning land if their husbands already ownded property. Under the old policy, only unmarried women or the wives of men who did not already own land were eligible for land rights.

The discrimination left millions of married women, widows and single mothers without access to the land where they live and work.
