Attendance at the public hearings

The purpose of the public hearings is to give the public an opportunity to express their views on the Zimbabwe Gender Commission Bill.   Stakeholders, interested groups, organisations and all members of the public are welcome to attend the hearings, at which they will be given the opportunity to make representations. 

If you want to make oral representations at a hearing, signify this to the committee clerk before the hearing, if possible, so that he can notify the chairperson to call on you.  An oral representation is more effective if followed up in writing.  If you are providing a written copy, it is advisable to take as many copies as possible with you for circulation at the hearing.

Written submissions

Written submissions and correspondence are also welcome and can be:

- sent by email – addressed to clerk@parlzim.gov.zw, or
