Abstract

Conceptually, resilience is the resilience of the socio-cultural economy of women batik workers in adjusting and dealing with crisis and uncertain conditions as part of the dynamics of batik business. The condition is getting worse with the inherent social status as a widow, stigmatized as someone who needs to be pitied. As experienced by batik workers at Gumelem Banjarnegara. They have developed patterns of resilience in dealing with the dynamics of life. This study aims to uncover the reality of resilience and survival strategies for women in vulnerability situations. In this study, vulnerability is seen from three components: exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity that will affect the women’s resilience ability. Data was collected through participatory observation, in-depth interviews and supported by literature study. The results showed that the vulnerability experienced after holding a widow’s status was a drastic economic change, which demanded them to become the backbone of their families. They optimize the use of social capital (building relationships, following communities) and human capital (doing side jobs) to reduce economic vulnerability. This paper is expected to provide input for the empowerment of widows and women in general. From a theoretical point of view, the study of the resilience of batik laborer widows is expected to be able to contribute to the discourse and understanding of resilience patterns and the development of conceptual understanding of the context-based resilience of vulnerable local Javanese communities, particularly based on the economics of the batik craft industry.
