Master's Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, St. John's University, language: English, abstract: Gender inequality in Kenya is real. The problem of gender inequality still prevails in almost all spheres of life despite the many efforts by the government to try to achieve gender parity in all spheres. The major reason why this situation has prevailed is due to the complexity of the concept of gender equality and the fact that it has received minimal attention. Gender equality should go beyond being perceived as ‘sameness’. In reality, majority of the Kenyan women and girls are facing the problem of inequality and discrimination.

This paper tries to evaluate the efforts made by the Kenyan government in achieving gender equality. In addition, it seeks to look at the gaps that the government has left out leading to the current situation where there exist educational disparities, social, cultural and economic. It will also look at the efforts by the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in bringing gender parity. Lastly, this paper proposes several interventions that need to be put in place in order to achieve gender equality.
