Fighting to provide women a “seat at the table” in the political process in countries like Kenya and Somalia involves challenges beyond cultural tradition and harmful stereotypes. On the latest episode of World Policy On Air, Nairobi-based political analyst Nanjala Nyabola discusses parliamentary quota systems in East Africa and what happens when they are undermined by patriarchy.
