There has been progress in terms of legislation of land ownership and women rights on the same subject in Kenya and a number of Non-Governmental Organizations and Civil Society Organizations are in the fore front promoting women land ownership. It is noted that women play an integral part in food production for their families however, land tenure system in the rural areas discriminates against women hence very few women own land. The overall purpose of this study was to establish various interventions that the state and community can adopt to ensure that women gain support in accessing owning and controlling land, an essential factor of production. The objectives of this study were to assess the influence of access to information on women land rights on women land ownership, to examine the influence of land administration patterns on women land ownership, analyse the social economic impacts of women land rights and assess the role of culture in realizing women land rights. The study focused on the factors that promote women land rights by examining the global and national context in the quest to realize women land and property rights. Relevant literature was reviewed to ascertain the state of women land ownership and study gaps were identified. The study employed descriptive survey research design that was both quantitative and qualitative in nature adopting a participatory approach. The target population was 46390.
