Introducing myself and my journal: UNRULY WOMEN IN THE MALESTREAM
The founder member of Society Against Negative Exclusion Kenya (SANE-KENYA), a non-governmental organization that endeavors to bring sanity into the society that for a long time has been bedeviled by all kinds of exclusions and discrimination in areas of gender, tribe, religion, age, employment, and politics, among others. Currently I am a consultant with Actionaid International: training on topical issues of Gender Based Violence and Women in Political participation. My latest assignment has been training grassroots women aspirants for various political posts in Kenya for the March 2013 general election. Through this process I have witnessed many challenges that women face to acquire political seats or even nominations. This has prompted me to come up with an article on how women are marginalized in politics in Kenya. Consequently, I have been involved with HIV/AIDS sensitization. In 2008 I formed HIV support group for women living in my rural area: RAMULA HIV SUPPORT GROUP. This has helped many overcome stigma and live positively. I am an active member of Peoples Health Movement where I was trained with International Peoples Health University (PHM-IPHU) short course "The Struggle for Health". I endeavor to see a world that incorporate all despite our differences.
