Women's Political Participation and Leadership Assessment: Kenya 2-Pager

The women’s political participation and leadership (WPPL) assessment in Kenya uses the latest iteration of USAID’s WPPL Assessment Framework. The assessment investigates the barriers to and opportunities for expanding WPPL in Kenya along socio-cultural, institutional, and individual dimensions. The assessment findings and recommendations are derived from a desk review of relevant literature and documents, a questionnaire survey of 63 politicians, and 28 key informant interviews and nine focus group discussions with politicians, civil society, and media across Kenya. Relevant stakeholders can use the Kenya WPPL Assessment Report to identify priority areas in which their investments in programs and initiatives to support WPPL are likely to have the greatest and most meaningful impact.
