The Experience of Violence by Zimbabwean Women

African democracy institute Idasa, with the Research and Advocacy Unit (RAU), the International Centre for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) and the Women’s Coalition of Zimbabwe (WCoZ) have conducted research on Zimbabwean women’s views on transitional justice, looking at how women in that country have been affected by the elections, the inclusive government, transitional justice mechanisms and law enforcement, amongst other topics. The research was based on a survey of more than 2 000 woman, as well as discussion groups on the research finding. The following reports are the first to come out of this study: “Women, Politics and the Zimbabwe Crisis” was produced in May 2010. It was followed by “Preying on the ‘Weaker’ Sex: Political Violence against Women in Zimbabwe”, which was released in October 2010. See more info here.
