A revolution to enhance women’s political participation (NewsDay)
Zimbabwe, like many other countries, has more women than men.

Above 52 percent of the country’s population are women and it is these same women that make most of the country’s social structure.
Zimbabwe has signed and ratified a number of regional and international instruments that call for gender equality in various spheres of life.
However, in spite of the existence of these supportive instruments, the country has not fared well in advancing the participation of women in politics.
