Traditionally women among the Maasai are reported to have been greatly marginalized. For example, they were not allowed to stand up and speak their concerns in a meeting. If the issues is that pressing, a woman had to support herself on her knees as sign of respect for men (and stand up like men do), then she could humbly speak.
However, Ngodi (pictured right) said things were getting better. "We demand our rights. We can now speak whether they like it or not.Its our right." Said Ngodi in Lobbying and Advocacy Training at Namanga. The training was organized by MVIWAMO (a net work for small farmers and pastoralists' groups in Monduli & Longido)
