The Constitution of Kenya, 2010 considerably expands the role and space of women in leadership and governance. It accords women expansive opportunities to contribute effectively in decision making both nationally and at the devolved governance structures.
The National Assembly of Kenya consists of 47 women representatives each elected by the registered voters of the counties.
With the recently concluded elections, some counties have new women representatives while others have retained theirs.
