Samenvatting

This book provides deep insights about women in higher education and their contributions to society. Using Kenya as a case study, it places women in higher education at the center of the socioeconomic, political and cultural discourse both within and outside the higher education institution. It is notable that even with the progress made, both in Kenya and globally, gender considerations in social, economic, political and cultural spheres is still minimal.
In higher education, gender imbalance is still distinct in varied areas such as career advancement, leadership, mentorship, and scholarship opportunities. In society, women’s efforts still seem to go unnoticed. The aim of these chapters, therefore, is to share women’s research in higher education and in society especially innovative policy and practice concepts, all aimed at contributing to social transformation.
