    The limited research on the benefits of women gaining secure rights to land and property suggest positive results: an increase in women’s participation in household decision-making; an increase in net household income; a reduction in domestic violence; an increased ability to prevent being infected by HIV/AIDS; and increased expenditures on food and education for children. Understanding the complexity surrounding women’s land rights is critical to ensuring that those rights are protected and improved.

    Comment décider si un outil foncier correspond bien aux besoins des femmes comme à ceux des hommes? En dépit des avancées dans le domaine des droits des femmes, ceux qui concernent la terre et la sécurité du régime foncier ne sont pas également répartis entre les deux sexes dans bien des régions du monde. Cela va à l’encontre des droits humains reconnus par les conventions internationales, tout en ayant des effets néfastes sur les ménages et sur l’économie. Lorsqu’elles touchent à la terre, les questions d’égalité des sexes deviennent plus complexes.

    This article examines the evolution of policy recommendations concerning rural land issues since the formulation of the World Bank’s “Land Reform Policy Paper” in 1975. That paper set out three guiding principles: the desirability of owner-operated family farms; the need for markets to permit land to be transferred to more productive users; and the importance of an egalitarian asset distribution.

    This paper explores, conceptually and empirically, the question of how much food is produced by women. Data for labour inputs and agricultural output are used to assess women’s contribution to food and agricultural production. The study also assesses gender differences in productivity. The paper finds that a precise measure of women’s contribution to food production is impossible to establish. In general women do not produce food separately from men and it is impossible to disaggregate men and women’s contributions either in terms of labor supplied or in terms of output produced.
