This article identifies factors that affect the provision of information in rural Kenya as: government’s limited support of the information sector, male dominance, conflict of interests of information providers, media interests, and nepotism. It shows ways to remedy the situation by recommending the need to recognize women’s groups’ role in providing information structures and systems relevant to information use among rural communities. It concludes by urging researchers in information and communication fields to consider the pursuit to investigate new roles of women in communication.
