Very few women are engaged in engineering in Zimbabwe. This article discusses the probable causes, among them educational restraints, traditional and cultural pressures, the absence of role models and a lack of career information. The article further touches on future action to educate more women in the profession, including changing attitudes, organised career guidance, affirmative action and the promotion of women in engineering.
