Abstract: Scholars, politicians and women activists today share a concern for the limited representation of women in different political bodies. Statistics comparing female representation in sub-Saharan African legislatures suggest that a small group of countries in Sub-Sahara Africa contribute to the relatively high female representation. Uganda is one of these, with 24% women in parliament. This article is based on my master thesis ”Can you really fail to support the one who feeds you? An analysis of female representation in the Parliament of Uganda”. The data is collected from interviews with 20 (total of 74) female parliamentarians’ summer 2002, newspaper reports and secondary sources.
