> In 2019, Kenya enacted the Data Protection Act 2019 (DPA), to
> operationalize the right to privacy in Kenya.
> Since then, Kenya has established the Office of the Data Protection
> Commissioner whose mandate is to enforce data protection rights and
> principles as envisioned in the DPA.
> Despite this, there exists a gap in awareness and understanding of
> existing safeguards for data subjects and more so women under the law and
> privacy features on social media platforms.
> This guidebook aims to raise awareness on data protection and privacy in
> Kenya from a gender perspective.

> brief on data protection and privacy from a gender perspective
> and the Guidebook on Data Protection and Privacy from a Gender
