    Our script of the week is a mini-drama that illustrates some of the issues and concerns in the complex area of land ownership rights. Though women spend hours every day working on the land, they are often not allowed to own land. Limiting women’s access to land limits their ability to produce food more abundantly, and affects the well-being of their families and their communities. Women are increasingly searching for ways to bring awareness to the issue of land ownership rights. Some women are calling for changes to the laws and customs that restrict their right to own and inherit the land they work so hard.
