Résumé
Using Ethiopia’s 21st century joint titling certification initiative, this research estimates how increased female land rights can impact the prevalence of female empowerment measured through female intra-household bargaining power in three of Ethiopia’s main rural areas : Amhara, Oromia, and Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region (SNNPR). Exploiting the DHS’ 2005 and 2011 and ERHS’ 1997 and 2009 data surveys, cross sectional OLS analysis and first-differences regression, respectively, this research estimates a positive impact of exposure to the titling initiative on female empowerment through increased intra-household decision making.
