Until recently, there has been little attention on women's Human and legal rights as both nature and nations have been understood through the characteristics of men since men occupied the public sphere while women the domestic one. It is worth noting that the traditional sexual division of labour which assigns women to domestic sphere and men to public sphere entrenches their inequality as women depend on men for subsistence, domestic life retains them into privacy thus making them invisible and ensuring preservation of the status quo. The goal of the survey was to identify the kind of information that women need in order to better enjoy their human and legal rights within the family propose institutional arrangements through which the information could be imparted to women and identify one or more NGOs through which these arrangements and or mechanisms could be established.
