The Political Prospects of a Pastoralist Woman

Very few women have succeeded in campaigning for an open parliamentary seat. The total number of pastoralist women MPs in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda adds up to only a handful. In Ethiopia, which has the largest pastoralist population, there are a number of notable pastoralist women MPs, but they tend to be confined to junior positions.

Pastoralist women endure harmful customs such as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and continue to have less access to public services in areas that already lag far behind the provisions available in other parts of their country.

On this podcast Purity Nashipae Ndilai delves into this matter and focuses on empowerment as a process for enabling pastoralist women.
