Change in Attitudes Beliefs and Practices Regarding Gender

Christian missionaries discouraged many Samburu practices such as female genital surgery, polygyny, and arranged marriage. This has had a major impact on gender roles of devoted Christians and educated Samburu, though these remain a fairly small minority. Development projects have also been directed disproportionately toward Samburu women, which has encouraged westernized notions about how Samburu women should behave today. Gender roles have undergone important transformations as a result of economic changes brought by the declines in their herds. For men, migratory wage labor has increasingly become a part of their normal gender role, while the cash for daily sustenance is often generated through women's brewing or other small-scale business activities.
