When and Why the State Responds to Women’s Demands: Understanding Gender Equality Policy Change in Indonesia

Author: Sri Wiyanti Eddyono, Estu Rakhmi Fanani, Dini Anitasari Sahbaniah, Yurra Maurice, Haiziah Gazali, Juni Warlif, Sisillia Velayati, Farha Cicik

This study analyses gender equality policy change initiated by various women’s movements in the context of Indonesia’s democratization. It focuses on advocacy processes for the approval of laws and policies to address violence against women, the protection of domestic workers and unpaid care work. It explores how the state at various governance levels—national, provincial and district—responds to these policy demands. The report also examines the conflicting interests of religion and customs, and how these factors influence the state’s response to pressure for policy reform.
