In most post-revolutionary situations, there is a need for reconstruction of institutions and infrastructure that are deemed necessary for the realization of the goals of the post-revolutionary societies. In the SADCC region, struggles for national liberation are taking place in South Africa and Namibia. Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Angola are engaged in reconstruction after their struggles against colonial regimes. Countries such as Tanzania and Zambia are continually trying to reconstruct their economies that have been stretched by support given to national liberation movements. The attempts at reconstruction are occurring in situations where the current struggles against colonialism and imperialism are intensifying. The potential for regional disruption socially, economically and political increases as these struggles intensify. It is within this context that the experiences of women in higher education administration will be examined. The major case for reference will be that of the University of Zimbabwe. The experiences of women in higher education administration will be discussed so that their policy implications can be assessed. Where possible, reference will be made to the other SADCC countries for comparative purposes.
