A Zimbabwean feminist, Prespone Matawira, has designed a board game which illustrates what she calls ‘Zimbabwe's game of health, of life, of death.' Players take turns to move along the board and try to avoid finishing, because the finish line is death at the age of 34 – which is the current rate of life expectancy of women in Zimbabwe. In the game, some situations hasten a player’s progress towards death: “falling sick,” the “closing down of a government clinic”, a “week long water cut” and a “lack of transport to hospital.” “Receiving remittances”, the “formation of a community women’s forum, “and “seeing a private doctor” are some of the situations that take players further away from death. Interestingly, the “formation of an inclusive government” seems to be neither positive nor negative; a player who lands on this square misses a turn. It seems to be a very temporary reprieve. >>>
