dc.description.abstract Abstract Despite the Zimbabwean government‟s ratification of various regional and international conventions on gender equality, female participation and representation in the country‟s politics is still limited. This paper examines women‟s participation and representation in the election process in Rwanda and Zimbabwe, with the goal of identifying best practices that could promote women‟s political representation and participation in the latter. The study is a documentary review of information considered relevant to its aims. Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states were mandated to ensure that women had 50% political representation by 2015; however, Zimbabwean women have not attained this level of representation in the parliament, senate, cabinet and decision making posts in political parties. This can be attributed to structural, institutional and individual barriers. In contrast, Rwanda has over 50% women in its parliament and other decision-making posts; hence the need to learn from Rwanda in terms of its wide-ranging and sustained campaign for women and its strong gender equality political agenda. en_US
