This book is the result of a recent field study conducted between May and July 2011 in Uganda by the Uganda Land Alliance.  The ULA’s documentation team embarked on field trips in 8 different country districts (Amuru, Apac, Gulu, Pader, Hoima, Kyenjojo, Mubende and Jinja) to establish the progress women have made vis a vis their rights to land and identified individuals who have made gains in ‘fighting’ for their land rights. These persons were asked to share their stories.

The detailed experiences captured from the cases have been published into the book

To accompany the book, a video documentary was also produced which will be available soon.
