Women’s Political Participation, Policymaking and Democracy in Indonesia


Issues related to women's political representation, especially in Indonesia, have become an important issue lately. However, what has happened so far is that the patriarchal system is still inherent in some areas. Men are considered as rulers in several parts of the history of human civilization, while women are as if only taking care of the household and belonging to men. This triggers the emergence of issues regarding the issue of gender roles and positions between men and women. In fact, many countries, especially Indonesia, adhere to a democratic political system that must involve all members of society, including women. As regulated in the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia article 28 where everyone has the right to express opinions, where women also have the right to participate in political activities and decision making. This paper will explain how women participate in world politics and explain women's representation in Indonesia.
