Women's Role in Post-Independence Zambian Politics

  • Bertha Osei-Hwedie Brandeis University

Abstract

This article examines the participation of Zambian women in politics by comparing the Second and Third Republics. A comparison of the two political periods illustrates that democratization and political liberalization by the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) in Zambia have not radically improved the role of women in politics and may have worsened the political situation of Zambian women.
