In 2018 Rwanda was ranked number five in women’s participation in the economy, their educational achievements, their health and their political involvement. Women occupy more than 50% seats in the parliament. Though there is a political will to promote gender equality feminism is not a culturally developed concept.
Most of the businesswomen in Rwanda are in the small trade business – the remaining majority are employed by local and international corporations in middle career positions. Rwandan women are believed to be very loyal to their managers.
