Women did not know where they could access [services for] their violated rights and they lost hope.” A 2009 survey by the Tanzanian NGO Equality for Growth shed light on the alarming levels of violence experienced by women market traders.
The survey found that 40 per cent of women traders in Dar es Salaam markets surveyed had been sexually harassed, 32 per cent had been verbally abused and 24 per cent had experienced other forms of violence from male traders and customers.
The project aims to ensure that women market traders can work without fear of violence and are properly protected by law.Women working in the informal sector – often the only opportunity for employment for many women in Tanzania – are disproportionately affected by violence.The informal and often unregulated nature of such working environments is additionally aggravated by the absence of mechanisms to report violence and protect women from harassment.Betty Mtewele said: “” In addition, nearly two in three women now know where to report violence and four in five say that violence has decreased in the markets, according to those recently surveyed by Equality for Growth.In total, over 1,600 market traders and visitors to the markets have participated in various initiatives to combat gender-based violence.
Gemma Wood, Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist for the UN Trust Fund recently visited the project and expressed that, “a real difference has been made both to preventing violence, but also boosting economic and political opportunities for women in the market environment.
