Women as Agents of Democratisation
By Faith Kihiu
Following a gendered approach, this study presents a descriptive analysis of the role women's organisations have played in the democratisation process in Kenya since the pre-colonial era. Supported by this historical analysis, an indepth study of five political women organisations in Kenya is presented, in which organisations' structure, programs, and strategic approach to political participation presented by the new available spaces after the introduction of a multiparty state in 1992 are illustrated.
