This paper explores the road walked by women since chaotic land reforms beginning 2000 in Zimbabwe. The paper argues that women have been actively involved in the civil strife in the country.

To set the stage for the discussion the terms civil strife and women as active agents are defined fist followed by the role of women in civil strife or war situations elsewhere before tracing the path travelled in Zimbabwe since the year 2000.
