ILO says Zimbabwe workplaces are unsafe for women

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has revealed that the country’s workplaces remain unsafe for female employees who are stalked by vices such as sexual harassment, job insecurity and lack of empowerment.
In a study titled: “Future of Women at Work Initiative,” ILO established that women are victims of unpaid work, low wage jobs and the ills associated with informal economies such as lack of job security, poor social security and lack of empowerment.
According to the study, 30 percent of the country’s employees in the labour force are women with five percent in senior management positions and three percent of Zimbabwean boards being chaired by women.
