Mobility and tenure

This first part of this chapter looks at the way in which female heads of household have moved from one shelter to another during their lifetimes and explores some of the reasons for those moves. Much of the information covered reveals how shelter Is inextricably linked to women's economic and reproductive roles. Movement has been something forced upon many of them rather than being a positive decision that they have taken independently of outside forces and for their own benefit. The second part of the chapter focuses on tenure patterns and how these vary for different types of household with respect to both dwelling and land.
