Gender and mobile phone usage in Kenyan women’s everyday

Abstract [en]

In both academic and popular discourses, there has been much talk of a mobile revolution in Kenya. Yet how revolutionary has this been for women? The aim of this chapter is to explore how women’s mobile phone usage is related to the negotiation of gender roles in everyday life and how and in what situations mobile phones can empower women. The data was gathered in Uasin Gishu County, an area which is predominantly rural but also home to the city of Eldoret and its surrounding peri-urban areas. The living situation differs widely for women in rural, peri-urban, and urban areas, which influences women’s appropriation of mobile phones. The chapter is based on 30 semi-structured interviews with Kenyan women and asks: how do Kenyan women in rural, peri-urban, and urban areas use mobile phones? When and how do mobile phones empower Kenyan women?
