The first draft of a new Constitution was completed in June 2013 and is currently being debated in constitutional forums around the country.[1] Currently, the 1977 Constitution of Tanzania prohibits gender-based discrimination but the country’s legislation has yet to be adjusted to support this principle.[2] In general, legal protection for women remains limited, in part because Tanzania’s judicial authorities take into account both customary and Islamic laws,[3]though customary law is not recognized as a valid source of law under the Constitution.[4]
