The School of Law through the Centre for International and Development Law cordially invites the presence of female students and faculty to a public lecture by Ms. Sharon Kisire, the General Manager of Kenya Pipeline Company Limited, to be held on Thursday 8 November, 2018 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Room 602 at the School of Law, Parklands Campus.
Ms. Sharon Kisire, General Manager of Kenya Pipeline Company LimitedThe public lecture focusses on the gender question in light of the prevailing socio-legal environment in the Kenyan system as read together with recent happenings exposing women professionals and students. The gender question remains contested with the Constitutional two-thirds gender rule yet to obtain full implementation in the Kenyan political and public institutions; and the continued debate on the role of the woman in society especially if read with a feminist theoretical understanding.
The proper contextualisation of feminism, its meaning and application in Kenya continues to elude our society. This is the debate that Ms. Sharon Kisire shall engage bringing her personal professional and academic experiences in contextualising the true feminist in modern Kenya. She boasts over 30 years professional experience. She is a holder of a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and Anthropology, and a Master of Arts Degree in Criminology from Kenyatta University; a Diploma in Human Resources from the Kenya Institute of Management; and a Certified Secretary.
All are invited!
