Pastor Bill Heib, from Riverside Ministry Center in Somerset, Wisconsin says that the daughters of these Kenyan women are born with three strikes against them. "They're born girls, they're born poor, and they're parentless."
Dr. Mumbi Mwangi speaks of domesticity in Kenya as both encompassing motherhood as well as defining a woman's place in the home. She doesn't have a problem with that. The trouble begins, says Mwangi, with the idea that domesticity and motherhood are incompatible with education.
