Abstract:The author argues that a study of gender relations and the land question should include an examination of processes such as the evolution and role of class formation in differentiating access to land and related resources. Racially determined relations of power and control over resources and the influence of ethnicity and nationalism in fomenting exclusive and parochial bidding strategies for land and natural resources control also require close attention in the study of land and gender. Against this background the author offers a gendered perspective of the land question in Zimbabwe. He first presents an overview of Zimbabwe's land problem and identifies specific land problems confronting women in Zimbabwe, and at the end he discusses weaknesses in current studies of gender, land and the reform process.
