Zim Laws Fail to Protect Women, Girls

Women activists believe the rights of women and girls continue to be violated in Zimbabwe

Women activists believe the rights of women and girls continue to be violated in Zimbabwe even though the country has the best laws designed to address gender-based violence and inequality.

The activists state that, there is little action to match the laws available to protect women who were constantly abused in homes, schools and in the workplace.

Women's Coalition of Zimbabwe’s director, Virginia Muwanigwa - speaking at the launch of the Southern African Development Community Gender Protocol Barometer for 2013 - asserts that the problem emanated from the country’s failure to implement legislation.
