Launch of Women MCA’s Handbook

Posted on Posted in all updates

On 29th October 2018, CEEC with support from GIZ-CPS launched a handbook titled; Promoting Gender Inclusive Governance: A Handbook for Women Members of County Assembly at the Emory Hotel in Nairobi. The launch brought together Women MCA’s from Muranga, Kiambu, Nairobi, Makueni, Kirinyaga and Baringo Counties. The handbook is a simplified guide for women MCAs on how to effectively discharge their mandate of representation, legislation and oversight. It provides general information on County Assembly procedures as well as strategies that Women MCAs can use to promote gender equity and equality. It also provides tips on how to build social and political capital within and outside the assemblies. The handbook aims at strengthening the quality of leadership by women MCAs, hopefully leading to increased chances of election or re-election. Increased numbers of women leaders and improved quality of the leadership they provide would ultimately contribute to gender inclusive in governance.
