Gender laws mean greater rights and protection for women

Last week's passage of a law outlawing domestic violence and establishing the rights of women when it comes to inheritance and the registration of customary marriages is an important step forward in improving the status of women -- particularly rural women -- and ensuring greater protection for women and girls against violence in the home and community across Sierra Leone.
