Women’s land rights activists, participants in Landesa’s Visiting Professionals Program, give us an inside look at advocating for women's land rights in India and Africa. These international development practitioners will discuss their current projects and experiences in a conversation moderated by Landesa staff.

This lecture is part of the Empowering Women through Art and Action series taking place this fall at the Burke Museum.

Kalpana Sathish, from ActionAid India, is an advocate and lobbyist for legal reforms for marginalized women.
