Back to Indonesia, I celebrated Kartini’s day on April 21. She is honored as a pioneer in women’s rights in Indonesia. She was born on April 21, 1879. Despite her limitations from tradition and family and she had to stop schooling at the age of 6; she continued to educate herself from home. She didn’t keep her knowledge to herself, but she channelled her dreams and ambition by writing letters to some influential people. In her letters, she voiced her protest against the gender inequality in Javanese tradition and the forced marriage for young women which denied education for women.
