Abstract

Power gender dynamics are among the greatest challenges facing participation in sports leadership today. The prerequisite to respond to the effects of power gender dynamics is widely recognized in scholarly literature. Power gender dynamics lead to multiple leadership challenges that distress humanity which eventually affects their leadership styles and desire to take on leadership. Uganda is among the African countries experiencing the effects of power gender dynamics with women being the most affected. Despite the existence of institutions and policies, evidence showed that power gender dynamics influences in sports leadership were real when a comprehensive review of different concepts, theories and frameworks using a gender perspective was done. Gender organizational and Critical feminist theories were underpinned using gender lenses to design the conceptual framework that explained practical strategies for addressing the influence of power gender dynamics on women’s participation in sports leadership. The researchers emphasized that successful leadership hinged on the nature of participation of the existing formal and informal institutions by focusing on the involvement of both men and women. Finally, gender sensitive theoretical and conceptual frameworks that could be adopted for effective participation of both genders in sports leadership in Uganda and Africa at large were proposed.
