Elections in Zimbabwe have always been bitterly contested affairs since 2000, and women have not been immune from all the problems that emerge during elections. There has been an endless cycle of women victimization when it comes to voting or being elected for political office or within political parties. Many people assumed and hoped that the 2018 elections would bring different and positive results, but the run up to elections became increasingly acrimonious, and the allegations of intimidation and hate speech, particularly towards women, began to increase the closer the country got to the poll.
