Barriers to women adopting decision-making roles in sanitation-related public bodies and attitudinal differences between male and female decision-makers

2019 - 2020 • Athena Infonomics

Purpose

To analyze barriers limiting women’s participation in leadership roles in sanitation-related public bodies in Kenya

Activities

The research design employs mixed methods to assess gender balance in decision-making/technical roles. It also identifies barriers to female participation in those roles. The research exams the internal workings of organizations in the sanitation sector, as a potential source of gender inequity in their external service delivery.

Objectives

The study aims to capture how gender might impact, shape or shift the definition of sanitation among decision-makers. It will then look at how this lead to differing policy priorities, or intervention approaches where women are given greater presence, voice and power in the sanitation sector.

Further information

Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) awarded Athena a grant to analyze barriers limiting women’s participation in leadership roles in sanitation-related public bodies in Kenya. The grant falls under its Urban Sanitation Research Initiative.
