4 On paper, Ethiopian women enjoy rights that are greater than those of women in any of the other countries. Although the Civil Code initiated extensive reform of customary laws, two significant issues remain and are identified in the chapter on Ethiopia: women's ability to control and manage household property and status and prevalence of customary practices. Despite the equitable rules for division of property, at another level the Civil Code codifies customary practices (see chapter 4).

The underlying principle of the conference was that African policymakers would speak on their priorities and concerns, and the Bank, the ECA, and other donors would listen. Consistent with this, each participating country was responsible for selecting its topic for discussion or presentation at the conference. Therefore, the Bank and the ECA did not preselect issues and priorities but merely established a facilitating and enabling process for the effective participation of the six countries. The Bank and the ECA provided a broad framework or some stated principles that would be applicable in selecting topics or subjects.
