Tanzanian women are faced by many tasks in national development. With the exception of their traditional tasks the new tasks require a revolutionary change in all spheres of life and they require a truly liberated women as a human being. Law, as an instrument of bringing about social change in society, can go a long way to improve the status of women when applied in a concerted effort with other social aspects but there are fundamental restraints Which make the realization of this objective a complicated process. In order to understand what delays a positive development towards improving the status of women through legislation it is important that we examine the impact of certain social factors.
