ABSTRACT

The need for this study stems from the traditional view that women have a primary responsibility for family care while that for men is to provide for the family. This result in women being steered from an early age into sex stereotyped occupations and roles. Historically these occupations have been structured in either the middle and the lower cadres of the organizations, while those for men are structured at the top echelons of the organizations. It is in this light that this study sought: "To investigate the factors that influence the progression of women to top leadership positions in Kenya." To this end the study reviewed literature from past studies done on this area. The study also reviewed journals and articles written on this area too.
