Women, Land, Plantations and Oppression in Sierra Leone

September 2021
World Rainforest Movement (WRM)

Includes an interview with Amanda Massaquoi, member of the Informal Alliance Against Industrial Oil Palm Plantations in West and Central Africa, who is supporting women in Sierra Leone who are opposing the oil palm plantations model. In practice women are not included in decision-making on land and there is a prevalent violence towards women from within communities. Attempts to synchronize all land laws have not been successful.
