Women Marriage and Inheritance

  • SHARE:

The report is a result of a two year study conducted in 1992 and 1993 with a view to investigating and examining inheritance laws and practices according to “our cultureÀ or customary law, and general law, and how these laws and practices impact on females and males. The study was conducted in Mochudi and Gaborone. The findings of the study reflect, among other things, the dynamic nature of customary law, and how despite the social conditioning that females have undergone over the years, they increasingly successfully assert what they feel to be their right to inherit, or on an equitable basis with their male counterparts. It is hoped that the findings of the study will be an eye opener for those who have been successfully conditioned to believe that only males inherit the most financially valuable assets, while females inherit only pots and pans.
