This came out at a Womens Rights Forum meeting held in the city this week. Petca Gwashure, from the Womens Coalition of Zimbabwe (WCZ), said freedom of expression must be a guaranteed right. We should be able to have and express opinions without fear. Women should have the freedom of print, electronic and artistic media. The government has an obligation to guarantee these fully and encourage an environment that limits control and censorship, she said.
She added that media production houses must have a stipulated quota of women related issues to cover, over a period, or an issue to ensure past imbalances addressed.
