Even when women have equal land rights, cultural constraints as well as lack of labour and capital make it difficult for women-headed households to rely on farming, and the wider income-generating opportunities in urban centres are a main reason for migration” (pp. 16).

"In this context, the reported reductions in polygamy appear to be driven primarily through increased poverty which makes multiple wives unaffordable, rather than through attitudinal change...

The latter reportedly results in favoritism toward one wife and ultimately leads to jealousy and conflict. Conversely, other respondents stated...more
