The gender equality is included in one of human rights as a human being. The right to live respectfully, free from fear can also be free to make choices in life. All of these rights are not only intended for men, but also have the same rights as men. As a result of the need to support the family and the increasing level of education of women, the emergence of the issue of gender inequality began to be voiced in Indonesia since the 1960s.
