2021 Policy gap report on Women’s political participation in Kenya

FIDA-Kenya conducted this study with the objective of mapping out legal and policy gaps as well as barriers that impede women’s’ political participation in Kenya. This study reviewed the legal, institutional and social contexts in which women vie for election and serve in office, at both the national and county levels. It highlighted the challenges faced by women in seeking political office and those they face to while in office. The report also reviewed the role of key stakeholders in promoting women’s political participation and made recommendations on how these institutions could be more effective.

The analysis was conducted at the national level and at the county level in eight counties: Bungoma, Elgeyo Marakwet, Garissa, Homa-Bay, Kirinyaga, Kitui, Kilifi and Samburu counties.
