The study was about gender based discrimination and socio-economic duties in Kenya a case study of Bungoma district The objective of the study was to establish efforts that have been put together to overcome such discriminations and the significant steps women victims have initiated to address discriminations in all spheres. The study used both qualitative and quantitative research design and the questionnaires being asked revolved around the causes ( factors) leading to wider gap indiscrimination of women, the effects and the safeguarding quality methods that has been instilled The research revealed that the main factors leading to gender discriminations was mainly due to control and access to research, exploitation of women by men, devaluation of women integrity and differential in the rationale , which summed up to gender violence in Bungoma District ( Kenya). The cultural effects on judicial laws and the structural hierarchy challenges, threatened the status quo of women, the situational analysis reflected the entrenchment of human rights. The study therefore recommended that the victims should learn from the past culture of being used as sexual objects and focus towards the culture that is free from oppressions. The victims should establish a link between the past, present and the future as they voice their expectations which should be more powerful than the circumstance that surrounds that they should package the grievances in executive summary as they work for the best fit alternative for their status quo.For the government, there was need to put checks and balances that indicates, reduction of hostilities in the communities through cascade principles that determines the transformation model of a major shift from the old cultural comfort zones to the inner operational or working zones that gives deliverances to its people. The government of Kenya should use the life cycle advisers to identify the risks and gaps through their mission, vision and value ethics.For the NGOs, should formulate standards that are universal and ratify the fundamental of human rights. They should interlink the holistic perspectives that underscore gender issue. The government of Kenya should realize that the hierarchical basic needs of gender goes beyond food, water and shelter; the pyramid includes; safety, security, identity, culture destructive justice and participation in the legal framework There was need therefore to reduce frustrating goals, reconstruction of social environments, ideologies anti-radicals and private gains in order to increase the moral values of gender group through control safety measures. No country or part of the world is immune to the costs of violence, even though investing resources in it might cost much, especially in the prevention stage , the enormous dividends , both to the society and the Nation is very high in terms of turn-up ratios.
