Floriculture has emerged as a significant industry in Tanzania, providing employment to thousands of workers, with women constituting up to 60% of the workforce. However, in recent years, there have been concerning reports of harassment, intimidation, sexual violence, and other forms of gender-based violence in the industry.

Although these reports have confirmed the occurrence of discrimination and harassment, some areas have seen improvements over time. Education has played a significant role in driving these positive changes.

This project was commissioned by Equal Times to raise awareness of the ongoing gender-based violence in Tanzania's floriculture industry and the need for education to mitigate its effects.
