Abstract:This book is the outcome of a study undertaken by the Electoral Institute for the Sustainability of Democracy in Africa (EISA) with the support of Gender Links. It focuses on gender (in)equality and electoral processes in 7 SADC countries. The Introduction is by Gender Links. The constituent chapters are: Consolidating democratic governance in the SADC region: gender equality and electoral processes (Susan Tolmay, Colleen Lowe Morna); Democratic Republic of Congo (Glenda Flick); Lesotho (Mamoeketsi Ntho); Madagascar (Noroarisoa Ravaozanany); Malawi (Ngeyi Ruth Kanyongolo); Swaziland (Doo M. Aphane); Zambia (Charlotte Wonani); and Zimbabwe (Luta Shaba); and there is a Conclusion by Glenda Flick. The overall opinion of the contributors is that gender equality is not a primary consideration and is often neglected by policymakers, political party leaders, electoral authorities and civil society in each of the countries concerned.
