Abstract
In order to describe Indonesians’ civic and political participation on global issues facilitated by the social media, particularly on anti-sexual harassment movements, this article analyzes students’ activism on KitaAgni, a movement to propose anti-sexual harassment policy on campus. The KitaAgni movement was considered as one of the Indonesian versions of the global anti-sexual harassment movement MeToo. The research used qualitative and quantitative data to describe the activists’ attention about the global anti-sexual harassment movement and their political participation on the issue. The indicators were adapted from the typology of political participation and civic engagement developed by Ekman and Amnå. The result shows that all respondents consider sexual harassment knowledge important, and the majority has attention on the global anti-sexual harassment movements. However, their political participation is more online than traditional. The small scope of the movement, although widely discussed in the media, shows that Indonesia’s anti-sexual harassment movement has a long way to go. Further research could pursue a more effective way to foster movement that lead to improvement.
