The African Women’s Leaders Network (AWLN) was established in 2017 with the intent to create a fora for existing and emerging women leaders across the continent to share their experiences and to create partnerships across the continent in order to work towards established African and international goals, namely: the Africa Agenda 2036 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Zimbabwe is signatory to these frameworks and has ratified several women’s rights instruments such as the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) (1979) and the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995). Moreover, the Zimbabwean Constitution (2013), notably Section 17 spells out the equality between the sexes and women’s right to full participation in all spheres of Zimbabwean society. In addition to Section 17, Section 80 maintains women’s right to equal opportunity in political, economic and social activities. Despite these measures in place, women are underrepresented in leadership and decision-making positions.
UN Women Zimbabwe has been supporting the establishment of the AWLN Zimbabwe Chapter which was launched in February 2020. AWLN is an “action-oriented initiative that seeks to enhance the leadership of African women in bringing transformative changes focusing on peace, security and development in the continent.” The aim of the National Chapter of the AWLN in Zimbabwe is to create a network of a diverse group of women who can work together to hold leaders accountable to commitments for gender equality and support each other in their work on women, peace and security and women in governance.
Following the successful launch of the AWLN Zimbabwe Chapter under the theme ‘Peace and Social Cohesion for Zimbabwe’s Sustainable Development’ and inception activities, the Chapter requires a website to share information about AWLN Zimbabwe as well as the initiative’s activities. The website will also provide links to existing social media platforms administrated under the initiative.
