Uganda Women in Culture, Business & Travel

A profile of Ugandan women in the fabric of society

Highlights of This Profile

Women often occupy different roles in a foreign culture. Avoid offensive assumptions and behavior by understanding the position of women in Ugandan society: their legal rights; access to education and health care; workforce participation; and their dating, marriage, and family life. Boost your knowledge about how things work in Uganda to avoid insulting its people or their heritage.

Both men and women can make a better impression and show respect by understanding how women are viewed in Uganda: whether they enjoy the same legal rights as men; how they are represented in Ugandan politics, law, medicine, and business; if they can date or choose their own mates and professions, and what they tend to choose. As a woman, you'll gain insight on how to blend in with dress and behavior and make appropriate travel or business plans to fit in with cultural norms.
