Writer and film producer Tsitsi Dangarembga among BBC’s 100 most influential women. Zimbabwean prominent writer, Tstsi Dangarembga, has been named amongst BBC’s 100 inspiring and influential women in 2020 around the world. She was listed among actors, human rights activists, political activists, politicians, nurses, engineers and others. BBC said:

This year 100 Women is highlighting those who are leading change and making a difference during these turbulent times.

The list includes Sanna Marin, who leads Finland’s all-female coalition government, Michelle Yeoh, star of the new Avatar and Marvel films and Sarah Gilbert, who heads the Oxford University research into a coronavirus vaccine, as well as Jane Fonda, a climate activist and actress.

And in an extraordinary year – when countless women around the world have made sacrifices to help others – one name on the 100 Women list has been left blank as a tribute.

The BBC’s 100 Women team drew up a shortlist based on names gathered by them and suggested by the BBC’s network of World Service languages teams.

We were looking for candidates who had made the headlines or influenced important stories over the past 12 months, as well as those who have inspiring stories to tell, achieved something significant or influenced their societies in ways that wouldn’t necessarily make the news.

The pool of names was then assessed against this year’s theme – women who led change – and measured for regional representation and due impartiality before the final names were chosen.

On Dangarembga’s profile, the broadcaster mentioned that the playwright was among those detained for taking part in civic protests in Zimbabwe this year, with protesters accusing the government of corruption and misgovernance.

BBC added that Dangarembga was released on bail after being charged with incitement to commit violence and breach of health regulations introduced to curb the spread of coronavirus. Fellow authors have called for the charges, which Tsitsi denies, to be dropped.

Dangarembga was one of six authors shortlisted for the prestigious The Booker Prize award for her work This Mournable Body.
