Women in sport have expressed concern over the continued reluctance to ensure a more equitable distribution of resources for the girl child on the sporting front.

At the beginning of this year, concern was raised when the Warriors received a $1 million windfall from the government for qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations, yet the Mighty Warriors struggled for any form of support after qualifying for an even bigger stage, the Rio Olympics.

Zimbabwe Olympic Committee (ZOC) CEO, Anna Mguni bemoaned an imbalance on the administrative front which remains a domain dominated by men.

Section 17 of the Zimbabwean constitution speaks about the essence of gender balance and the responsibility of the state, all institutions and agencies of government at every level in ensuring there is access to resources for women on the basis of equality to men.

Despite such a provision, there is continued concern over the reluctance to provide resources for the girl child in sport.
