Abstract: ABSTRACT This research project offers an analysis of gender inequality in Kenya. Despite many years of academic analysis and practical feminist activity, the progress towards achieving gender equity is painfully slow especially in Kenya. Given the scope and the speed of this change, it is essential to keep the change patterns of gender relations under continuous scrutiny to monitor the extent to which progress is being made towards women emancipation and their integration in development in Kenya. The subject matter of this research is prompted by the assumption that gender inequalities make Kenyan women to become victims and have no or little role in development due to their victimization. The general objective of this research is to analyze the key areas of gender inequality in Kenya; these areas include; the health and Education sector, Economy and workplace, Culture and religion. To this end, the specific aims of this research are to analyze the effects that gender inequality has on Kenya’s development and whether the integration of women will contribute to the development process, And if equity in Kenya can be achieved through resocialization and cultural reorientation. 'Statistics alone cannot make policy. Some rich countries have no poor people but have high levels of inequality while some poor countries have low levels of inequality.' -Dr Edward Sambili
