The latest female opportunity index 2021 has placed Rwanda on top of East Africa with 77 points while Kenya came second with 70 points ahead of Tanzania and Uganda who averaged 69.9 and 69.5 points respectively.

The study which was carried out by German organization N26 was carried out in 100 countries which placed Kenya second in East Africa and sixth in Africa in terms of women's access to government opportunities.

Factors such as the number of women in the government, women in management, salary level, the gender wage gap, women's access to education as well as the number of women who have heardd the government from 1970 to present were considered.

Kenya only managed to outrank Rwanda in three categories which included salary level, the gender wage gap and female access to education as well as maternity leave days.

"Rwanda has the most women in government positions followed by Spain and Finland. Almost half of the countries (46 percent) in the index have had at least one female head of government in the last 50 years," read part of the report.
