Promoting Gender Equity in Selected Public Universities of Kenya

by Jane Kerubo Onsongo

The purpose of this study was to examine sustainable gender equity interventions in selected public universities. The study used descriptive survey and case study research methods to carry out an in-depth analysis of the gender equity interventions in selected public universities in Kenya. The sample consisted of four public universities that were selected because they had established gender centres/institutes that were assumed to be coordinating gender equity intervention.

The study has the following objectives: To establish the existing gender inequalities in the formal organisational structure of the selected universities; To identify and assess sustainability of gender equity interventions in the selected public universities; To analyse the national, regional, international and organisational culture and policy contexts that have infl uenced and supported the introduction of the identifi ed gender equity interventions; To investigate the attitudes of staff, students and management towards the gender equity interventions; and to recommend appropriate institutional strategies to address existing gender inequities.
