Without legislation and good will from the university managers and central government, it may not be easy to realise the good intentions spelt out in international conventions such as the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995) and the World Declaration on Higher Education for the 21st Century (1998). Again, emphasising access as is the case now, without making efforts for inclusion, changing the climate and promoting women to decision-making positions may only reinforce the gender stereotypes.

And I think that sometimes is the undoing of the university management (woman manager, March 2004). Strategies for implementing gender equity policies in Kenyan universities Some of the suggestions made by respondents to enhance implementation of gender equality policies include the following: • • • Gender mainstreaming: This is the process of assessing the implications for women and men of any planned action, including legislation, policies and programmes, in any area and at all levels. It is a strategy for making women’s as well as men’s concerns and experiences, an integral dimension in the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes, in all political, economic and social spheres (UNESCO, 1999).
