Abstract

Land reform in South Africa intends to redress racial imbalances with regard to ownership and access to land. On the surface, the various strategy documents also talk to transferring land to black women, the youth and the disabled. Tim Hart, Margaret Chandia and Peter Jacobs reason that some interesting patterns are emerging with respect to gender relations and land ownership driven by land reform.
