In Zambia, Gender inequality manifests itself in a system of power, privilege and oppression. Women and girls in particular experience shockingly high levels of discrimination and exclusion, which perpetuates poverty and violation of their fundamental human rights.
This entails challenging the overall public finance and natural resource management in Zambia which is characterised by corruption, wastage of public resources, illicit financial flows, narrow tax base, and an increasing debt burden. The shrinking CSO space in Zambia is evidenced by state application of oppressive laws such as the Public Order Act to suppress citizens’ freedom of assembly, association and speech.
