Kenya: Inequality

Feminist African Sister has a shopping experience in which she personally experiences the inequalities that exist in Kenyan society….”That is the state of inequality in Kenya. Yes it is also about the fact that, Nyanza has a lower life expectancy than Nairobi; that women in North Eastern have the highest rate of illiteracy. But I think we need to also recognize and become aware of how inequality manifests itself and weaves itself through our lives. The inequality that ages our girls – making them think that just because they can put off buying nail polish in the interests of bus fare tomorrow, that this means they are adult enough to have babies, ‘get married’, ‘set up a home'”
