Strong Small-Scale Farming Systems
Equal land rights for women
The Working Group of Women for Land Ownership's mission is to promote women's land ownership and to implement awareness and action around women's inheritance rights to agriculture land.
The main three objectives of the Group are to increase women’s access and ownership of land and other productive resources by means of ensuring an effective implementation of laws for women’s entitlement to land, and by enabling entitlements towards productive resources to undertake advocacy for policy initiatives — framing, change and analysis or critique — at state and national level, to thus facilitate women’s land rights, including ownership of and access to land and productive resources. WGWLO also aims to mainstream the issue of women’s land rights and rights of women farmers through influencing government and non-government agencies, corporate houses and mass media.
The Working Group for Women and Land Ownership (WGWLO) is an informal, unregistered network of 35 NGOs and CBOs in Gujarat, working on the issue of agriculture land ownership from the angle of promoting the livelihood, security, rights and empowerment of women.
