dc.description.abstractThis edition of Gender Net is an appropriate sequel to the previous edition, which focused mainly on women's economic rights and the gender biases in access to and control over economic assets. It will be recalled that with in that context, it examined a broad range of issues affecting women's access to economic resources such as land and credit. it also analyzed major historical, socio-cultural economic and political root causes, which explain the prevailing gender disparities in access to and control of productive assets. Extensive coverage was also given to global, regional and sub regional commitments made to women's rights in these respects. In the current edition, it will focus on tackling the feminization of poverty in Africa, thus availing readers of an opportunity to appreciate the economic implications of denying women their rights to productive resources. This issue also includes two articles that focus on the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and argue that monitoring performance in this regard has to be done through the gender lens, as this will allow for appreciating the interdependent nature of the MDGs.en
