Empowering Women through Land Policy Change: The “Soulaliyate” Movement Mohamed Said Saadi, Economist and Independent ConsultantThe aim of this paper is to illustrate how the Soulaliyate movement was able to gain limited recognition of their right to collective land via public authorities, and to bring about modest policy change.
