Law in Swaziland Gives Males Control of Property

A woman in Swaziland who worked saved money, and decided to purchase property until recently had no legal right to register in her own name what she purchased since the law gave males complete power over female property. The male could also bequeath her property to someone else upon his death. The law has recently been changed to allow women to register land in her own name. But, as of this date, nothing has been done to alter the Marriage Act which still gives husbands considerable power over family assets.
