Reaching for Equality: Zimbabweans Endorse Gender Equity in Politics but Say Citizens Treated Unequaly Before the Law

"Most Zimbabweans support gender equality for political candidates, even as women remain grossly under-represented in elective office. More broadly, equality before the law is not yet a reality for all citizens, survey findings suggest. There is a widespread perception that justice is applied selectively, with public officials who commit crimes largely going unpunished while the opposite is true for ordinary people. These findings beckon government to increase efforts to ensure equal opportunity and justice for all."
