  • President Uhuru Kenyatta approved the campaign in 2016 Daily Nation

  • President Uhuru Kenyatta is among a handful African Leaders who signed a United Nations He-For -She movement in 2016.

    The UN initiative seeks men to support its efforts in ensuring gender equality and empowerment of women all over the world.

    The campaign was realized after it was evident that for gender equality to work, the movement has to involve the society as a whole, including both women and men.

    During the launch of the campaign in Nairobi, Cardinal Njue also signed up for it stating that gender issues are also experienced in the church.

    The cardinal further divulged that the Catholic Church has never shied away on those issues understanding that people sometimes forget that they are human.

    During girl child’s day, Celebrated on October 11, Kenya has been ranked numerously among the top countries supporting women’s rights.

    Part of the reasons include the implementation of laws favorable to women’s well-being and empowerment such as the decriminalization of pornography, sex trafficking and gang rape.

    The country is also among the countries that signed the Beijing agreement on women empowerment in 1995 and continues to support it.

    The Government of Kenya, in June 2013, introduced free maternity for all women in public health facilities which is championed by the first lady Margaret Kenyatta.

    Everyone joining the He-For-She movement is expected to sign up online and then sign a banner pledging their solidarity in advocating for gender equality.
