Gender Gap Analysis in Economic, Educational, Health, and Political Inequality in Indonesia
Gender equality is one of the sustainable development agendas in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) program, which was agreed upon by member countries of the United Nations (UN) in 2015, as a continuation of the previous program, the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals). Gender equality is an important issue considering that various national development efforts have in fact not provided equal benefits for women and men. For this reason, a serious response from the government is needed to create gender equality in order to achieve equal access between men and women in making decisions, involvement in various aspects of life both in the public and domestic spheres.
