Author: Jacqui True


The important and crucial question of the relationship between women's poor access to productive resources such as land, property, income, employment, technology, credit, and education, and their likelihood of experiencing gender based violence and abuse is discussed. The role played by global processes such as neoliberal economic policies, armed conflict, natural disasters and other crises in reinforcing existing gender inequalities and creating new forms of marginalization are highlighted.
