The Importance of Justice and Gender Equality in Indonesia
Indonesia has ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) 22 years ago, through Law No. 7 of 1984 (UU No. 7/1984). In the course of implementing CEDAW, the Indonesian government realized that discrimination against women was still strong in all fields of development. This discrimination threatens the achievement of justice and gender equality in Indonesia.
In 2000 the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Abdurahman Wahid, issued Presidential Instruction No. 9 of 2000 concerning Gender Mainstreaming in Development (Inpres PUG). It is hoped that national development will integrate a gender perspective from the process of planning, drafting, implementing, monitoring, to evaluating and utilizing the results.
To strengthen the legal umbrella for Gender Mainstreaming, in 2006 the Ministry of Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection (KPPPA) drafted a Draft Government Regulation (RPP) on Gender Mainstreaming
From a philosophical aspect, Pancasila as the philosophy of the State is the philosophical basis for the importance of the KKG Law, especially the Second Precept of Pancasila “Just and Civilized Humanity” and the Fifth Precept of Pancasila “Social justice for all Indonesian people”. The just and civilized Humanity Principles contain the meaning that justice applies to every human being
On the other hand, the Government of Indonesia has signed a global agreement document on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) or the government’s official term is the Sustainable Development Goals (TPB), which consists of 17 Goals (Goals) and 169 targets (targets). In the TPB there is one goal, to: Achieve Gender Equality and Empower all Women and Girls.
