Abstract

The discussion on woman and politics is a global issue being the starting point of feminism inception to fight for woman’s right in politics. In Indonesia, woman and political issue has actually been discussed by the nation’s founder, Ir. Soekarno, and feminism issue in Indonesia has been an integral part of Indonesians’ struggle since pre- and post-independence periods. Woman and politics issue is discussed more intensely in the presence of affirmative action policy concerning 30% woman quota in political area in reform era. This article addressed the reinforcement of women’s role in politics conducted in Indonesia through its suprastate political and infrastate political elements over times. The big question is how far and what is the output of the fighting for strengthening the women’s role in Indonesian politics up to 2020. This article employed systematic review method with literature study. Data was collected from documentation of news, journals, governmental regulations, and books addressing woman and politics in Indonesia. The result of research showed that many regulations have been developed to govern affirmative action of 30% women in political area at both central and local levels. However, the result of review on previous studies conducted shows the less optimum political education to women and woman cadre building in politics. Additionally, not all society classes and households support gender justice and equality in political area. It can reduce the success of participation in both formal and informal politics. The author recommended the improvement of gender mainstreaming education within broad society in order to be integrated further into political area.
