THE WOMAN CONCERN IN KENYA'S JURISPRUDENCE
The book studies the existence, enforcement and adjudication of women’s
rights in Kenya. Reviewing the concepts of gender parity, gender
legislation and feminist legal theory, the book queries the existence and
observance of women’s reproductive rights; women’s property rights; and
the rights of women living in woman to woman marriages in Kenya.
Predicated on the understanding that gender equality affords women and
men equal enjoyment of human rights and equal opportunities, the book
curves a niche as progress report of the existence and observance of
women’s rights in Kenya. The book therefore enunciates the call for
gender equality as a device for establishing a sense of justice and fairness
in the treatment of women and men in order to eventually achieve gender
equality by requesting specific measures and differential treatment of
women and men.
