The Zimbabwe Women Lawyers Association (ZWLA) recently held a one and a half days workshop to train commissioners and members of the Secretariat on mainstreaming gender into the Commission’s work.
The workshop was also aimed at capacitating the Commission on key gender concepts and key women’s rights provisions in the Constitution.
ZWLA is one of the key institutions that was advocating for the inclusion of gender and women’s rights provisions in the Constitution making process. The organisation aims to ensure that the Constitutional principle on gender equality becomes a reality.
ZWLA felt that it was important to strengthen gender awareness levels of the ZHRC to enable the institution to effectively perform its mandate
