Zambia has passed a new law that increases women’s land ownership rights

Land ownership rights for women, young people, and persons with disabilities have been strengthened as a result of a political change implemented by Zambia.

The decision is hailed as a major victory for the country’s efforts to advance gender equality.

Although there has been no explicit distinction between men’s and women’s legal protection in Zambia in the past, in reality, social, economic, and cultural reasons have resulted in women not having the same rights to property ownership as men.

For example, women have traditionally been denied the right to inherit the property of their deceased spouse, which has instead been passed down to the spouse’s heirs.
