About this title


This volume examines the effect of government policies and social restrictions on the reproductive behavior and family life of the women of Kenya, especially the Kikuyu people. Importation of techniques for social and behavioral regulation from the developed nations, the social restructuring that followed the colonial intervention, the Mau Mau uprisings, and current widespread concern with AIDS have disrupted traditional influences on Kenyan reproductive behavior and family life. In response to these changes, women mobilized into a movement comprised of small local women's groups scattered throughout Kenya that attempts to educate and influence both its members and government policy. The successes and failures of this movement offer important lessons for the rest of Africa and the rest of the world.
