Abstract

As one of the most vibrant democracies in Asia, and as a country experiencing continuous economic growth, Indonesia is emerging as a leader in the region. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s appointment as the co-chairman of UN chief Ban Ki-moon’s High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda further indicates that Indonesia is increasingly seen as an example. As it emerges into the spotlight, Indonesia indeed faces the responsibility of setting a good example, particularly in terms of the Millennium Development Goals. One of the MDGs is promoting gender equality across the globe. This goal makes women’s empowerment and gender parity top priorities to achieve by 2015. To achieve these objectives, countries are aiming to give women and men equal access to education and economic participation at all levels.
