Hi colleagues, I would like to hear your feedback and input on my module 3 assignment.

For module 3 on writing an Op Ed I would like to write on Women and Political Participation in Kenya. My article will be majoring on women who vied for political positions. I would wish to critique the gender representation in the political arena in Kenya despite the new constitution on affirmative action. I wish also to bring out the barriers for women in breaking the ceiling. I will also pinpoint the marginalization of women by voters, fellow women and their male competitors during this process. I will like to bring out my points based on what I noted as a trainer on leadership and as an observer in three polling stations during the 2013 general elections in Kenya. Finally, I would wish to give my recommendations on how we can improve the number of women representation in my country, highlighting how women are able to courageously take on the injustices brought about by culture, globalization and seizes the benefits. As an aspirant in waiting I believe given an opportunity in political leadership women can deliver three folds their male counterparts.
