There was a meeting aiming to empower women in wealth and leadership.
It was attended with several different women boards including men.
There was an overall conclusion that women are strongly looked down upon and suppressed when they want to rise.
One of the member that attended the meeting said,
”vamwe varume vanenge vachiona kut ukamira pavanhu uchi addresser unomukurira and anenge achiona kuti kushanda chaiko mikadzi unodii unokurira munhurume
Saka anokutsika saizvozvo kuti ukasandida hausimukire.”
In our culture we believe that women must be under man, so whenever women want to rise they face too many challenges.
Sometimes they lack support from the community or they get threatened.
One of the men that also attended said,
”tikati ngakuitwe vote patsvagwe chairman unoona vachisimudzira inini munhurume panze pekuti zvazvisimudzire ivo madzimai.
Saka kut mai nhingin vave vanotora chinzvimbo umwe anotonzwa kirwadziwa kuti amai nhingi havangatore chinzvimbo chiya dai chatorwa neni”
