Awareness on inheritance rights, a project with Women Workers Help Line, Pakistan
This project was implemented by Women Workers Help Line (WWHL), an organisation that has been working in Pakistan to promote women’s social, political and economic rights, including campaigns for the repeal of all discriminatory laws against women. In this project, WWHL provided capacity building, leadership training and knowledge dissemination for women peasants, for whom land rights are closely linked to issues of food sovereignty. A charter of demand for women’s rights to land and property was drawn up after consultations with different stakeholders, social movements and NGOs.
The project organised seminars, training workshops, forums, community meetings and campaigns, as well as provided legal support and free consultation in different areas of the Punjab in Pakistan, successfully raising public awareness at the grassroots about women’s rights to land, property and inheritance.
