Early Grant Information for NGOs
The rule of law, a cornerstone of good governance and democracy, requires laws to be in place to hold everyone accountable, from the individual to the government. However, for millions of women and girls around the world, the reality is that the rule of law doesn’t mean much in practice. The two areas in which women’s rights are the least protected, where the rule of law is weakest and where men’s privileges are often the most entrenched, are:
Women’s rights in the sphere private and domestic, and
Their right to decent work and to inherit and control land and other productive resources.
