Budgeting is perhaps one of the most fundamental aspects in the life of a human being, organisation or country. Budgets are an element of an organization’s financial management that addresses the overall fiscal integrity of an organization and is an ongoing process. Budgeting entails the allocation of resources equitably and efficiently. This piece places its view on the allocation of the pending 2012 national budget towards women’s activities in Zimbabwe in light of the fact that for the past 30 years or more, women issues in national been ignored or seen as insignificant. However the truth of the matter is that the importance of women in the contemporary society is all too evident albeit their low numbers in positions of decision-making. Even the ordinary woman is burdened with a lot of challenges which need to be catered for. As such it is of essence that national budgets do have a vote that is solely directed to the activities of women specifically because the very existence of nations is attributed to efforts and contributions of the millions of women worldwide.
