Throughout the previous WLSA phases, lack of resources or poverty has emerged as a primary cause of inequalities suffered more severely by women than men in their everyday lives. In this fourth study undertaken by WLSA the focus is on assessing the impact of scarce resources on the access to, and utilisation of, an effective legal system from a gendered perspective. The main objectives are to: determine the impact of poverty on people's ability to access legal services and enforce justice; determine the extent to which poverty limits the state's and other institutions' delivery of justice to the people; synthesise and recommend measures within the framework of extremely limited resouces, for maximising the utility of the legal system to ensure justice.
