With the passing of the 2013 Constitution came an explicit commitment to gender equality in all aspects of Zimbabwean life, which was an important achievement of the women’s movement in all the lead up to the final draft. A crucial first step to ensuing compliance with the Constitution was for women to achieve parity in representation. Unless women are able to have a full say in the executive and legislative life of the country, they remain at the mercy of the agendas of their male counterparts, and past history has shown that women’s issues tend to be given a lower priority than many other issues in the governing of the country.
