    Warrap Women Union (South Sudan) (WWU) stated that, in Warrap, cultural practices had mostly been transformed into customary laws that affected women on a daily basis and caused gender-based and domestic violence in communities and homes. One major cultural barrier that caused a series of domestic violence was the payment of dowry. A suitor normally paid within the range of 50 to 200 cows for a bride in the Dinka culture and tradition. This dowry payment could easily result in the effective enslavement of the woman and make her a property of the husband. [Para 15]

    Contents:
    Full implementation of the 25% affirmative action as enshrined in the Constitution remains a big challenge to the Government because women illiteracy rate is higher than that of the men. This illiteracy rate among the women population is caused by customs and traditions perceptions and led to different allocation of duties, recognition and valuing of roles of women in the society. These experiences cut across the entire social construction ranging from the family, community to the national levels through religion, education, culture, and the media. [Para 55]

Women continued to face discrimination regularly, including in relation to such fundamental matters as marriage, land and property ownership, inheritance and education. Harmful traditional practices also played a role in perpetuating women’s unequal position within communities, particularly in rural areas. [Para 15]
