dc.description In IDL-52638 en
dc.description.abstract Rural women remain disempowered, have no access to meaningful economic empowerment, few of them own property, and due to these disadvantaged positions, are targets for gender based violence. Article 14 of the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) has not been instrumental in informing government policy on development that benefits rural women. Political involvement is low due to lack of road networks, communication systems, markets, schools and access to government structures. This is further impacted by rural women’s inability to articulate their right to development. en
