This is the first profile of series on the status of women in Botswana produced by Ditshwanelo, The Botswana Centre for Human Rights and SARDC WIDSAA. This profile was undertaken to highlight the areas of hidden under development in a country that has experienced unparalleled growth since 1970. However, despite this growth, poverty prevails among some population sectors, particularly women. Botswana’s development is ahead of many developing countries, but due to unequal relations the fruits of this development are not shared equitably between men and women. This profile therefore describes the existing disparities in Botswana in the economic, political and socio-cultural spheres, through data collected from official reports.
