The Women’s Empowerment Index (WEI) is the inaugural measure of women’s empowerment in Kenya. Development of the WEI represents a major milestone in the country’s evidence-based policy-making and sets a baseline for monitoring of the government’s progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5) on achieving gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls.

This report was prepared by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics in partnership with UN Women and UNICEF.
