Kenya Can Lead On African Gender Equality

The Guardian: Does Kenya have the courage to lead on women’s rights in Africa?
Faiza Jama Mohamed, Nairobi director of Equality Now, which acts as the secretariat of the Solidarity for African Women’s Rights

“…If it chooses, Kenya can take a lead in Africa on gender equality, but it needs to be much more consistent in its legislative policy and it must deter from enacting harmful discriminatory laws that ignore previous commitments. In the African Women’s Decade, we should focus not only on ending all forms of violence and discrimination against women and girls in Kenya, but on being proactive about making the country a more just society for all. This will take true leadership and an abundance of political will, and we hope that Kenya has the guts to make this leap” (4/21).
