The impact of Chinese products on Zimbabwean women

Charity Manyeruke


This paper evaluates the effects of Chinese products on women in Zimbabwe. The study used a survey as a research tool. The results of this survey show that Chinese products are a lot cheaper than the goods sold in locally owned shops. These products, however, have numerous defects which render them cheap quality goods. These products have affected women differently depending on which class one belonged to, and affected women's welfare in various ways. These include, among others, purchasing ability, employment, and self-esteem.
