This report confirms that the lives of women have improved in many areas over the last two decades, especially since the last census exercise of 2004 - but that the pace has been slow and uneven across and within regions. Its findings will guide the government, policy makers, researchers, scholars, non-governmental organizations and Sierra Leonean citizens, within and around the world, to improve the lives of every Sierra Leonean woman so that she can enjoy her human rights and an equal chance and platform to achieve her full development potential.
