Utaran began work on the Sustainable Access to Land Equality (SALE) project to ensure transparency and accountability in land governance in December 2012, in partnership with CARE Internaional UK and Manusher Jonno Foundaion (MJF). The project engaged communiies in three pilot upazilas - Amtali Upazila of Barguna District, Mohanpur

of Rajshahi, and Sadar of Jamalpur - to raise the awareness of vulnerable landowners about land administraion, and to effect transparent processes for selecing landless people and for khasland setlement. This booklet – the last in a series of 12 - uses case studies from Jamalpur Sadar to highlight the experiences of poor, marginalised women who successfully secured their rights to land with the assistance of Utaran and the SALE project.
