dc.description.abstractEven though statistics show progress in women's levels of education in East Africa, scholars have not empirically tested its impact on female political representation. This study explores the relationship between women's educational attainment and the likelihood of getting elected to the national parliaments in East Africa, particularly Uganda. Based on the individual-level predictors, the logistic regression results demonstrate that the likelihood of a female candidate being elected to the Ugandan parliament is associated with party affiliation, particularly the ruling party (NRM) and incumbency. However, results failed to confirm education as a significant predictor of female electoral success in Uganda.
