Today Uganda is among those countries in the world which boast of high women representation in the Parliament with over thirty per cent and generally, women now control some key positions in state institutions. This book gives an insight into the influence of socio-economic and political profiles on legislative performance of women in the Parliament of Uganda 2001-2009.
