It is now acceptable globally that gender discrimination and inequality are major stumbling blocks to women’s rights advancement. Historical injustices continue in some parts of the world without serious efforts to address them. This paper is a desk review on various article on the situational analysis of gender inequality and discrimination in Kenya. It is presented in the following format; Introduction; Historical practices that favor inequality and discrimination against women in Kenya; Current practicesthat favor inequality and discrimination against women; Legislative framework for the protection of women against inequality and discrimination; Achieving gender equality and non discrimination. The paper concludes that, with substantial progress underway a lot still has to be done. The social and cultural circumstances hinder women’s rights advancement, but with legislation, no efforts should be spared in the fight against inequality and discrimination of women.
