GL grew from humble beginnings to become a strong regional advocate for gender equality. GL measures progress towards attaining gender equality through the annual Southern Africa Gender Protocol Barometer at regional and country level. GL measures progress in attaining gender equality at the local level though the Gender and Local Government Score Card that is administered with the 450 Centres of Excellence for Gender in Local Government in ten Southern African countries (68 in Zimbabwe).
There is a wealth of information on GL’s website on all these issues. GL plans to radically change the way it presents information to make it more accessible and encourage engagement, especially with the youth.
