- Gender, Student Political Participation
Student political participation is gendered. It can be ascertained from the data presented in this paper that female students participate less actively than male students all seven forms of political participation; demonstration, signingpetitions, blocking traffic, occupying buildings, boycotting, damaging public facilities, and striking. This parallels the level of participation of female students in voluntary organizations, as can be deduced from the survey I conducted, detailing the level of participation of male and female students in UIN Jakarta in 2012. The sample consists of 388 students, where216 (55.7%) are female students and 172 (44,3%) are male. My researchfollows that of Seda (2002), Nurland (2002), and Soetjipto (2005) (1). Furthermore, it supportsthe findings of previous researchers,who argue that voluntary organization is a significant indicatorof one's level of political participation (2, 3)
