Abstract:This paper focuses on the marginalization of African women in general and Ugandan women in particular in the quest for the advancement of the African people. It brings to the fore the plight of the Ugandan woman and the latent variables that engender and perpetuate her oppression. Emphasis is mainly placed on the role of culture in the gender question as much as it hinders the progress of women. The Ugandan woman is deprived and impoverished as against the backdrop of her immense contribution - actual and potential - to the socioeconomic development of the country. Unless critical and pertinent gender issues are adressed, it may not be possible to harness the development process in Uganda. Bibliogr., sum.
