Agrarian Change, Gender and Land Rights



Leading feminist scholars in the field provide searching treatment of the long-neglected subject of gender and access to land. The articles are introduced and contextualized by Shahra Razavi. She weaves together the findings and arguments of contributions which look at the implications of the current neoliberal policy agenda for a number of specific regions. Topics covered range from policy discussions about women's land rights in sub-Saharan Africa to land tenure reforms and women's in Tanzania; and from new prospects with respect to gender and land rights in India and Uzbekistan, to agrarian reform, rural social movements and women's land rights in Brazil.
