Indonesian Feminist Journal Vol.1
In this first edition, IFJ presents a wide sampling of the work of several of Indonesia’s feminist thinkers. Debate on feminism and the feminist perspective in Indonesian society has flourished during the Reformation Era, intertwined with broader issues of democracy and justice. Over the years of Reformation gender issues have been openly debated in the context of widening and deepening democracy in Indonesia. Several of our authors call for inclusion, which arises from the exclusion that Indonesian women have experienced in many aspects of public life, including but not limited to political rights, economic opportunities, and governance. This edition features a cluster of writings on the topic of gender and corruption, which is a recent focus of feminist scholarship in Indonesia.
