Gender, Spatiality and Urban Informality argues that despite efforts by the Government in Zimbabwe to empower women through policies, programmes and legal reforms, the generality of them remain in a state of abject poverty which they strive, yet with difficulties, to extricate themselves from it.

Trading in low-profile goods, i.e.

least rewarding goods, is an avenue that most poor women have identified to empower themselves yet it is really a ‘long walk to freedom’.

Unlike a sizeable number of men, who have made staid inroads into high profile ventures in micro-finance, construction, manufacturing, trade, transport, information and communication technologies, to name but a few, women are still struggling with the smallest things including subsistence-making.
