Gender-Based Human Development in Indonesia


Gender-based human development alludes to improving the quality of life for men and women. Ideally, increasing gender development will create a balance of empowerment between men and women. Gender justice is a process ensuring the fair treatment of women and men alike and removing role-making, double burden, subordination, marginalization, and violence against women by men. Indonesia’s gender-based human development is characterized by the absence of discrimination between women and men in gaining access, opportunity to participate, and control over development and obtaining equal and equitable benefits from Development. Gender-based development in societal and state life is being pioneered with government programs implementing gender-responsive policies.
