ABSTRACT

The study focused on women emancipation and their participation in elective politics in Kampala

district. The apparent invisibility of women in politics is a worldwide phenomenon; and so there

is no much difference in case of Uganda. Despite concerted efforts by the organizations and in

the country championing for women’s emancipation and their participation in elective politics in

Uganda, substantial changes have not been realized concerning women’s emancipation and their

participation as far as taking up top and strategic political offices is concerned. This study is

interested in explaining why there is still low women emancipation and their participation in

elective politics and why they have not had a visible positive impact on the quality of

performance of women at the legislative and national level. The study was guided by three

objectives: To establish the Positions occupied by women in elective politics as candidates and

voters in Kampala district. To demonstrate the level of women participation and strategies

undertaken in elective politics. To identify possible challenges faced by women in elective

politics in Kampala.The study found out that most of the positions are simply reserved for men by law implying that few women are in position to compete head on with men in several elective positions.

The study recommended that various barriers and challenges limiting women’s participation in

Kampala politics should be overcome through women empowerment programmes. It also

recommended that both women and men should enjoy the same rights, even in the area of

political leadership both men and women should be given similar favorable terms and conditions

which are generally accepted by society, women themselves should take a step to fight inferiority

complex and lack of unity among themselves since it is one of the other leading barriers and

challenge that confines women from effectively participating in elective politics in the study

area. Furthermore the perception among women that politics is a dirty game should be out of

their minds if woman emancipation is to be promoted.
