The managers fail to support programmes aimed at enhancing the participation of women and men in universities. They fail to allocate the necessary resources and personnel for the effective implementation of the programmes. Again, new developments, like the gender centres, are given to women to manage, making other university staff see them as women’s programmes only, hence the male staff keep away from them. Gender awareness is necessary to enable people in universities to look at things with new eyes, in a way which is constantly open to learning more.

There is a history of greater male participation in most work settings, and this is especially so at the higher ranking levels, while at the lower levels, where this study focuses, the majority are women. Despite recent modifications, the workplace is still organised along gender lines. This paper looks at workplaces with special reference to Kenya’s Export Processing Zones (EPZ). EPZ companies are situated in Kenya near the capital city of Nairobi, in Ruaraka, Athi River and also at Changamwe in the port city of Mombasa.
