Land rights for women flips the script of gendered power—it challenges patriarchy at its root, by fundamentally changing women’s economic, social, and political status. And key to climate action, research shows efforts to protect biodiversity and address climate change are more successful when women have strong land rights.

Nairobi, 8 March 2022— Leaders and campaigners from across the world today launched Stand for Her Land in Africa, a global advocacy campaign for women’s land rights. The launch, on International Women’s Day, will link African grassroots organizations with national actors and international champions. Already, nearly 100 groups in Uganda, Senegal, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and worldwide are mobilizing to Stand for Her Land.
