The Right to Own Land

Only 1% of the world’s privately-owned land is held by women. In many nations, laws and traditions bar women from purchasing or even inheriting land. Even in nations like the U.S., where single women make up the second largest group of home-buyers after married couples, women receive subprime loans - and consequently lose their homes to foreclosure - at greater rates than men. Why is property ownership still a right reserved mostly for men? What can we do to change this?

Land = Power

Historically, women are not the only people that have been barred from owning land. For centuries in much of Europe Jews could not own land either, and black people couldn't own land in the United States when it was first founded.

That's because land ownership has always meant power, and the best way to bar people from holding power is to bar them from owning land. In feudal Europe, which only really ended with the Industrial Revolution, owning land meant the ability to collect taxes and wield power over tenets. In the U.S. it meant the ability to vote. It is no wonder that so many cultures still have a difficult time allowing women to own land, we have inherited a mentality that fears women with power, and we associate land ownership with that power.
