As a signatory to regional and international conventions, protocols and declarations that promote gender equality and equity, Zimbabwe is obliged to come up with policies that promote equality of the sexes. Of importance to note is the fact that Zimbabwe has acceded to and ratified the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the Convention on Civil and Political Rights (CCPR), the Equal Remuneration Convention, the Convention on the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour and Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ECOSOC), to mention only a few. In addition Zimbabwe adopted the Dakar Platform for Action and Beijing Declaration in 1995 thereby acknowledging and committing itself to take strategic action in the twelve (12) critical areas of concern as detailed in these documents.
