ABSTRACT The study provided for an Examination of Liberal Feminism and their Impact on

the Uganda's Jurisprudence. Therefore it examined the legal frameworks and

institutions responsible for liberal feminism practice in Uganda, examined the

impacts made by the liberal feminists in Uganda and explored the challenges faced

by liberal feminists while practicing their actions on promoting women equality in

Uganda and also provided for summary of findings, conclusions and

recommendations. The study used a Doctrinal method, it was conducted using

·.                                         

written sources such as text books, journals, reports, articles, legislations, internet

sources on the subject as well as case laws. Hence recommendations for the study

were based on sensitizing the public to end child marriage and sexual harassment.

In Uganda especially in the areas of Teso subregion, early marriages are major

impediments to girls' education. Therefore, if we want girls to complete education,

we must end early child marriage. We also have to seriously address sexual

harassment of girls. It's not disputed that insecurity is one of the reasons as to why

parents give off their children for marriage and therefore, a barrier to girl 's

participation in education. Ugandan women have prn.iicipated actively in all stages

of the country's development from the pre-colonial Period tlu·ough the

post-colonial Period. They achieved great political feats even in the face of

patriarchy paved the way for future generations to live a more inclusive life

politically, socially and economically. Women such as Magareth Ekpo and

Fumilayo Ransome-Kuti just to name but a few were very strategic to the political development and orientation of women in the country.
