WOMEN IN POLITICS

Kenyan and African women have fought many battles in their pursuance for equality and respect in society. Theirs has been a rocky path filled with tearful tales of brutality, dehumanization and even death. From the beaches of the Indian Ocean to the shores of Lake Victoria, women have risked their lives for the liberation of their gender.

From the legendary Mekatilile Wa Menza to the late Nobel Laureate Wangari Mathai; from the elderly Phoebe Asiyo to the brave Martha Karua, Kenyan women have struggled to defeat negative cultural practices that dehumanize them.
As Kenyans prepare for the 2012 general elections, women must strategise to win more elective positions since the constitution has expanded their space for gaining power. .........

Women in Kenya

Greetings, I agree that women need to be in the government, representing all women who have no voice. I am praying for Kenya's women daily and Leah. May God bless you.

Women

Hi Wanjala,

I'm very glad to read a new post from this Through His Eyes group. I strongly believe that in every aspect of our society, the role and participation is extremely important. For a better society which will bring about positive change, we really need women politics, woman innovators, woman ministers, woman leaders, woman media icons, woman journalists and reporters and so on.

Best Regards,
Insha Allah
