This book examines socio-cultural and gender-based barriers Kenyan secondary school girls face. Currently, research has focused on increasing girls’ enrollment rates to ameliorate the gender gap in African education. This research demonstrates that while it is important to have more girls attend school, girls today are disproportionately placed in inferior schools and confronted with gender-based attitudes that negatively impact their educational opportunities.
