The Civil Code of Paraguay was amended in 1992 to provide women and men with equal rights to enter into marriage.
According to the government’s latest report to CEDAW, in 2009 the Directorate of Health Programmes developed a National Sexual and Reproductive Health Plan, in part to ensure the availability of contraception in order to “reduce the high incidence of deaths from abortions performed under unsafe conditions.”Women’s access to land in Paraguay is guaranteed by Article 2 of the Constitution, providing that the government must “promote women’s access to land ownership, guaranteeing ownership through access to title deeds.” The Agrarian Act of 2002 protects the rights of women to own and manage land.
However, as described in the Restricted physical integrity section, the threat of violence in Paraguay impinges upon women’s access to public space, and women living in rural and indigenous areas may face particular restrictions in both the private and public sphere, as a result of discriminatory practices within these communities.
There have also been reports of the false imprisonment of lesbians, meaning that women’s sexuality is a target for restricted mobility.
Further, individuals in some minority groups, in particular in Mennonite communities, have impeded both access to information on violence against women laws and its implementation.
In its 2010 report to the CEDAW Committee, the government indicated that the Secretariat for Women in the Office of the President of the Republic had been working with the Public Prosecutor’s Office to increase awareness around these cases within the criminal justice system, for example, by “‘holding of workshops on violence and gender and sexual assault for persons intervening in [sexual violence] cases, and workshops with forensic experts on the use of kits for the taking of samples in cases of sexual violence”’.
