ABSTRACT
The unprecedented effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on gender and socio-economic activities is unparalleled in the history of Kenya. Buoyed by rapid economic growth and enabling institutional frameworks and guidelines in the past decades, an eight-point economic stimulus package was unveiled to mitigate the effect of economic recession, stimulate economic growth, and cushion households in addition to other Covid-19 pandemic containment measures. However, it had minimal impact on gender equality and empowerment. Proper mechanism should be put in place at both levels of government to draw out gender sector statistics to gauge gender imbalances and develop elaborate socio-economic approaches to address them. The chapter examines the prior and post Covid-19 socio-economic situation, its implications on gender, and makes recommendations for policy directions. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2021.
