dc.description.abstract This research has been undertaken as a collaborative effort between Women's Empowerment Link (WEL), a nongovernmental organization, the Gender Roundtable Series (GRS) formerly based at Kenyatta University and the National Gender & Equality Commission (NGEC); previously known as the National Gender and Development Commission. This study is a collaboration between Women's Empowerment Link (WEL), the Gender Roundtable Series (GRS), and the National Gender & Equality Commission (NGEC). It provides insight in to the minds of young women politicians and aspirants aged 18-35 years. To address the steep barriers young women face, some measures recommended are: targeted strategies to address the socialization processes that exclude girls from leadership and decision making; targeting men through gender awareness programmes; enhancement of youth empowerment programmes; promotion of leadership training programmes for young women; instilling transparency in nomination of candidates for elective positions. en
