What value does society place on women ? What value do women bring to leadership and governance processes?
African Woman and Child Feature Service with the support of UN Women is producing a series of profiles of women leaders in Kenya, highlighting their capabilities and the value they bring to leadership and governance processes.
The profiles highlight the contribution women leaders, in their diversity, are making in improving the livelihoods of Kenyans. They also show the added value of having women in leadership and decision-making positions.
Women 's voices and their participation in all aspects of life, particularly in political leadership, are now more important than ever. While women bring fundamental contributions to governance and democratic spaces, their role and input is rarely visible.

This publication is therefore the second in a series of compilation of profiles of women political leaders in Kenya geared towards increasing this visibility.
