Resumé:
Indsatsen vil bygge videre på resultater opnået i samarbejdet mellem Institute for Young Women Development (IYWD) og Afrika Kontakt. IYWD er blevet en demokratisk kvindebevægelse, hvor de 2500 medlemmer selv deltager aktivt og tager initiativ til lobby og kampagneaktiviteter for at fremme deres rettigheder i et patriarkalsk og undertrykkende samfund. Denne indsats vil fortsætte med at styrke IYWD og deres medlemmer til at blive endnu bedre til at lave strategier for hvordan man påvirker og nedbryder undertrykkende strukturer i praksis. Desuden vil indsatsten via IYWD's egne medlemmer, og på deres egen opfordring, monitorere og udfordre det traditionelle retssystem. De traditionelle domstole er en hjørnesten i den zimbabweanske kvindeundertrykkelse, idet de domineres af mænd og ofte dømmer skævt til mænds fordel og dermed agerer i modstrid med kvinders forfatningsmæssige rettigheder.
