Political party financing and equal participation of women in Kenyan electoral politics: A situation overview

This report, published in 2015 by the International Institute for Electoral Assistance and Democracy  presents findings from a study on political party financing and equal participation of women in Kenyan electoral politics. It was conducted with the objective to assess the formal and informal barriers that women face in relation to exercising their political rights. The study specifically looks into the role and extent to which access to financial resources determines the success of women running for elective positions in Kenya. It discusses the main findings on financial barriers for women politicians in Kenya, and makes recommendations to facilitate reforms in this area.
