I am highly wonder – stricken by three feminists from my city of Jepara. They struggled for women's rights in Indonesia. Raden Ajeng (R.A) Kartini, Nyimas Ratu Kalinyamat, and Ratu Shima are all women emancipators. R.A Kartini was Indonesia’s feminist educator, Ratu Kalinyamat and Ratu Shima were outstanding Jepara Queens assisting Indonesia of the occupancies of the Portuguese and directed the Holing/Kalingga Palace. From the above, Indonesia government has defined Raden Ajeng Kartini as a...

16 Days of activism against children and women abuse In South Africa, as in other Southern African countries, the period between 25 November and 10 December marks the campaign against women and child abuse. During this period, various activities take place to bring awareness against gender based violence and brainstorm ways to end this scourge. Among all these initiatives, the one that appeals to me most is the Cyber Dialogues which facilitates on-line discussions amongst differe...

The number of rape incidents recently has soared drastically. Just last year, the world lost a gem: a 23 year old medical student from India. She was gang raped by five men on a bus. After fighting for her life, she breathed her last breath and the hard battle ended. This young lady had a dream to make her hometown a better place. Bringing up more intellectual people was part of that dream. Just imagine how much she could've done if those 5 men didn't do what they did to her....

This incident caused a slight unrest in the small town that is out of network coverage and lacks hydro-electric power supply. The lady was rushed to the Catholic hospital nearby. During the workshop,...

One of the biggest problems faced by some women is early marriage. The consideration sometimes tends to correspond to their parents. Their parents want to command their daughters to attain the highest carrier and well rounded education before getting married. However, early aged-women feel a dilemma as they want to decide what the best way is whether to marry or choose other options. Perhaps, some negative stereotypes occur when young women who are aged less than 21 years old m...

I just strangely wonder - struck for a while since reading some information about gender and climate change. The first confusing information I have read is the correlation between gender and climate change. In fact, women contribute to climate change. So, should we blame my mother when the climate is changing? Let’s check below for some references! We know that the effects of climate change will vary among regions. It means each country changes greenhouse emissions with diffe...

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...
