Gender equality in Kenya
Kenya has made significant progress towards gender equality in the last decade. Despite this , Kenya has room for improvement in the areas of parenthood, entrepreneurship and assets.(e.g. only 2% of Kenyan women own land) . This is also seen in the levels of domestic work as well as in the sexual reproductive health sector.

In addition, gender inequalities and traditional gender norms contribute to disparities in unpaid care and domestic work, limiting women’s economic empowerment and overall well-being.
