The 2018 elections were a slap in the face for women. No more women elected
to the House of Assembly than in 2013 and even fewer elected to local
government than in 2013. This occurred despite the requirement in the
Constitution for gender equality as well as sustained efforts to persuade the
government and the political parties to increase the numbers of women. This
was more painful given the enthusiasm that women in Zimbabwe showed for
participating in the elections, with even more women registering as voters than
in 2013. Something is obviously wrong, and there is a strong need for a re-think
by the women of Zimbabwe in how they are going to solve this problem.
