    Kenyan women's anger at MP 'slur.'" BBC News. N.p., 27 Apr. 2006. Web. 27 Oct.       2010. <http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/4950774.stm>. This article       is about 2 thirds of Kenya's female MPs walking away from a debate on new       sex crime laws. These women walked away extremely angrily after someone       said that woman were too afraid to just say no. There is no Author or       Editor for this article written, but I did evaluate the site by looking up       information on BBC news. I found that BBC News is a trusted news sorce all       over the world. It has separate sections for different countries. This       article showed me that people in Africa still believe that women are afraid       of men and that they are superior to them. Even after all the moves forward       Kenya has made, there are still a few who are far behind.
    Kihiu, Faith. Women As Agents of Democratisation: The Role of Women's       Organisations in Kenya, 1990-2007. N.p.: LIT VerlagMünster, 2010.       Google Book Search. Web. 22 Oct. 2010. <http://books.google.com/       books?id=AexzUdJvdgQC&printsec=copyright#v=onepage&q&f=false>. In this       book, the author discusses the activities and social results of many Kenyan       women organizations. What I was looking for in this source was the       organizations Charity Ngilu is involved in and how her involvement has       benefited Kenya. In order to evaluate this source I did some background research on the       author. Upon doing this research I found that the book has been reviewed       and said to be a good informational read. Reading certain articles in this book has helped
    me understand more about the affects of feminism on women and some of the things
    people are doing to help. For example Charity Ngilu is a leader of the Nattional      Women's organization. This organization is raising money to educate more       women in rural countries. 
    Maathai, Wangari. Unbowed. New York: Random, 2006. Print. The information found      in Unbowed was a whole range of information on feminism. She told her story      of being discriminated against because she was a women from the time she     was a young girl to being an adult. The information in Unbowed is reliable because it
    is a memoir that has information that is supported from other sources such as BBC
    news and articles on sweet search. However, because the book is told from a first     person stance, then there may be some bias. The information in this source helped
    enhanced my understanding of  feminism because I was able to see real events in
    which feminism played a key role. For example, when Wangari was a young child and
    her family hadn't sent her to school, but had sent her brothers, showed me that feminism     started early on without people realizing it. Her family thought nothing of     it that she wasn't sent to school.
    Menya, Walter. "Kenya: State Signs Nile Basin Pact." allAfrica.com. N.p., 19 May       2010. Web. 27 Oct. 2010. <http://allafrica.com/stories/       201005190927.html>. This article is about a new bill at the time being       signed in Kenya. This bill is the Nile Basin Pact. It states that all who       sign it will be able to use the Nile's many resources openly. The author of       this article is Walter Menya. Upon doing research on him to evaluate his       credability, I discovered that he has written many articles on the Genocide       as well as other political topics on Kenya. I learned from this article       that the Nile is a very important resource, not just for Kenya but for many       coutnries in Africa. One of Kenya's most powerful female activist, Charity       Ngilu, has been working toward getting Kenya a better water supply. This       bill being passed is extremely important in order for this to happen. “
    Tripp, Aili Mari. "New Trends in Women's Political Participation in Africa."       N.d. PDF file. This article discusses what is going on in politics in       Africa. More specifically with women involved in politics there. It tells       about what's changing within that field. In order to evaluate this       document, I researched the author, Aili Mari Tripp. I discovered that she       Is a professor of political science and gender and women's studies at the       University of Wisconsin-Madison. I also found that she is the director of       the Center for Research on Gender and Women. Reading this file increased my       knowledge of what is going on in Africa. There were also some things to       learn about Charity Ngilu in this article.
