Abstract: Over three hundred female leaders of forums, common initiative groups and NGOs were trained, and provided with materials to train members of their groups. Workshops intended to not only build the capacities of women and women leaders by educating them on women‘s rights, but also on how to fight for these rights through networking and activism. Presentations of papers about land rights, which are reviewed here, were followed by lively discussion, such as regarding registration of land: while it takes a month or two for a man to obtain his land certificate, it takes 5 months or more for a woman.
