Abstract

Being numbered among the Less Developed Countries (LDCs), Senegal is a State populated by several ethnic groups among whom the Sereer, the Peulh, and the Diola. Still deeply rooted in their traditional values, the mentioned groups home-grow traditional rules that lessen ordinary people’s opportunity, particularly women who, in term of land ownership, come to grip with serious customary and traditional obstacles that hinder their emancipation process. In this paper, the targeted objectives consist in highlighting traditional barriers that bedevill women’s horizon to enlightment and empowerment in Senegal. Flings of reforms which, under the pump, have gone through up and down in the corridor of political will, will be underlined to arouse a crib of solutions that may be efficient to bail women out of their below social position.
