This paper addresses women’s participation in social, political and economic activities. In particular, factors that hinder women from participating in social, political and economic activities in mainland Tanzania are discussed. Analysis shows that factors such as level of education, type of place of residence, marital status, religion, region of residence and age groups, with different levels of magnitude contribute differently to their poor participation. Cross-tabulation is used to establish the relationship between “participation” as the dependent variable and the aforementioned factors. Multiple logistic regressions were used to determine the relative importance of the factors. Results indicate that place of residence; age group and region of residence are significant while education and religion are insignificant.
