The behavior of Robert Mugabe's wife 'Gucci Grace' inspired rage across Zimbabwe — but her downfall also led to rampant sexism  

Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi/AP Grace Mugabe was known for her corruption and extravagant spending in Zimbabwe, and was forced out along with her husband, Robert Mugabe, last month.
