Guess what?: Nurul encouraging women in politics
The Jakarta Post
Golkar politician Nurul Arifin marked Women’s Day on Saturday by encouraging women to be more politically aware.
“We must use Women’s Day [...] to realize that we need to struggle more for the sake of every woman in this country, and that’s why politics seems to fit,” she said as quoted by kompas.com.
Nurul, a former movie star, said Women’s Day was the result of the political struggle of early feminists. She said major effort was still required to provide more room for women in public policy-making.
“We can’t count on men to understand our domestic affairs, like the need for maternity leave […] We should do this ourselves,” she said.
