Producing Women And Progress In Zimbabwe

by Christine Sylvester, Producing Women And Progress In Zimbabwe Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Producing Women And Progress In Zimbabwe books, This book presents empirical and interpretive approaches to the question of who women workers of postcolonial Zimbabwe are and what they wish to gain in the way of progress. "Christine Sylvester moves between theory and on-the-ground narration with such grace. Fans of her feminist theorizing will find that her thinking about Zimbabwean women's lives will make them all the smarter." Cynthia Enloe, Author of "Maneuvers""This book provides vital exploration to the study of gender and labour relations in Zimbabwe. [The author] breaks new ground by incorporating theoretical perspectives with African women's everyday life and everyday experiences. This is an important book, timely in the sense that it departs from treating women merely as objects, but as subjects with voices to articulate their own history." Seki Nzenza Shand, Academic Development SpecialistThis book presents empirical and interpretive approaches to the question of who women workers of postcolonial Zimbabwe are and what they wish to gain in the way of progress. Through interviews with over 300 women across four economic sectors of the late 1980s' economy, and with over 150 experts working with women, the study finds that women workers are neither easy to characterize or set on "a" course of progress for themselves points that supervisors and development experts do not seem to realize and accommodate. The study draws on a wide range of theoretical orientations and evokes images of "women" and "progress" from the prodigious imaginative literature that has marked Zimbabwe's postcolonial years.

Trampled No More

by Otrude Nontobeko Moyo, Trampled No More Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Trampled No More books, "The stories of the Zimbabwean situation, particularly those of the urban townships of Bulawayo, are narrated through the voices of family members recounting their personal circumstances and what they perceive as the primary factors contributing to their repressed positions in the socioeconomical hierarchy. Professor Moyo goes behind the scenes in order to dismantle the simplistic "blame game" which asserts that the deterioration of Zimbabwe was caused solely by the current ZANU-PF lead government." "The study details the historical context and interpretations of history, which led to the much-discussed Zimbabwean political and economic crisis. Through the narratives of the Zimbabwean people, Professor Moyo highlights some of the acute strategies they and their families have used to survive as a way to explore future policy avenues that take into account people's "agentiveness" (the capacity to overcome unfavorable conditions by utilizing what little resources are available), Zimbabwe's greatest asset."--BOOK JACKET.

Striking Back

by Brian Raftopoulos, Striking Back Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Striking Back books, In the struggles for democratisation that emerged in the late 1980s and 1990s in Africa, labour movements often played a central role in the development of opposition politics. This book examines the emergence of labour as a strong organisational and political force in the struggles against an increasingly authoritarian state in Zimbabwe. Written by specialists in the labour movement from a variety of different perspectives, the chapters discuss the political, economic, global, organisational, legal, gender and sectoral challenges faced by the Zimbabwean labour movement in its move from the margins of liberation movement politics to a pivotal role in the post-colonial struggle for a more responsible and accountable civil society and government.
