Center on Housing Rights & Eviction (COHRE)

COHRE believes that securing women’s rights to housing and land is fundamental to improving women’s status and their lives. In order to secure women’s housing and land rights, COHRE believes that we must use a methodology and approach that recognises that gender-neutral forms of advocacy are not enough to make a real change in the lives of women. It must also be understood that those women’s housing rights violations are not only rooted in unjust systems of poverty and social neglect, they are also deeply-rooted in systems of gender-based oppression that must themselves be challenged and put right.
