Abstract
Gender equity has long been at the heart of inheritance law, yet gender prejudice remains, and discrepancies in succession law for land rights abound in underdeveloped nations. The prevalence of bias against women's property ownership can severely limit their position in the family and community, as well as their economic and professional options. It can also deprive rural women of incentives and capacity to participate in agricultural output, lowering their wages and restricting their involvement or influence in family activities or choices (Roy and Tisdell 2002). Furthermore, women's lack of land ownership impacts their social standing, forcing patriarchal attitudes on them, and women's position is low within the social strata and inside their families (Roy2008). Thus, land rights equity is widely advocated as a women empowerment tool to spur development outcomes (Mishra and Sam 2016; Montenegro, Mohapatra, and Swallow 2016; Wiig 2013).
