It also doesn't directly answer the question in the title. Instead, it tells
you who uses it, what it can do for you, and how does it work. The "What can
Zope do" section is an oblique answer to the real question but a
straightforward anwser would be better. Something like:

Zope is an open source application server implemented in Python. Zope has an
active user community and hundreds of add-on modules (called Products). Out
of the box, Zope provides a nice through-the-web administrative interface,
database access, page templating, user management, and a persistent
transactional object database. Zope is also cross-platform and scalable.
