Gender and Politics in Kenya’s August 2022 poll: A Media Monitoring Study
Kenya’s August 9, 2022 poll generated immense interest among aspirants, with intense campaigning taking place for legislative, gubernatorial, and presidential posts. Among these political candidates were large numbers of women seeking to serve as members of county or national assemblies, and senators.
