While estimating the effective ownership of women over land, a conservative estimate reveals that not more than 4 percent (ranging between 2% and 4%) of land in rural Bangladesh is owned by women (Barakatet.al.: 2014).

In order to bring out grass root level experiences of women landowners and fisher-folk communities in one platform and to influence inherited rights, 14 local level Women Rights and Women-led organisations are facilitating a network. Currently network members are representing all of the eight divisions in Bangladesh by sharing their field level experiences and evidences.
The expected outcomes of the network are as follows:
