Gender, Ethnicity, and Violence in Kenya's Transitions to Democracy: States of Violence



Lyn Ossome ROWMAN & LITTLEFIELD (2018) The book shows the contradictory relationship between democracy and gendered violence as largely influenced by the capitalist interests vested in the colonial state and its imperative to exploit laboring women; the nature of the postcolonial state and politics captured by ethnic, bourgeois class interests; and neoliberal political ideology largely disarticulated from women's structural positions.
