The crux of the study was to assess the effectiveness of traditional dispute mechanisms (hereinafter, TDRMs) in facilitating women’s access to justice when securing their land rights in land disputes. The objectives were therefore to assess the status quo regarding the nature and functioning of TDRMs, to analyze the effectiveness of TDRMs in improving access to justice for women with regard to safeguarding their land rights by asking the African woman question and to recommend practical ways that state and non-state actors can apply substantive equality to remove impediments to women accessing justice using TDRMs to secure their land rights.
