Gender relationship built in the fishing community in KB is still low because the KB is considered the domain of women, the low knowledge of women about family planning programs that cause women to be very vulnerable to receive the impact of the use of contraception, the condition where women can not make their own decisions if you want to participate in family planning program so have to ask the husband's permission.
