Engendering the Mainstream through Village Bylaws: A Case of Tanzania

By Godfrey Massay

Land Laws in Tanzania are among the most progressive laws on gender equality in land access and ownership in the Sub-Saharan Africa (Knight, 2010). Despite these progressive laws, women have little representation in the land allocation decisions including in the meetings of the Village Council2 and the Village Assembly3 (Pedersen and Haule 2013, Dancer and Tsikata 2015, Salcedo-La Vina and Morarji, 2016, and Kisambu, 2016). Even though Tanzania’s land and local government laws provide for minimum ratios of women’s representation, in practice women are rarely represented in an effective way.
