This Book of Potpourri is a collection of WRI personnel’s writings that highlights the various poverty-led problems faced by women. It attempts to show in detail several images of the poverty situation faced by women. This book delivered a fact that the problem of gender-based poverty remains unresolved despite the issuance of a number legal basis to promote gender equality in Indonesia.


It is expected that Women Research Institute, an institution that seeks the development of the concept of gender equitable governance, can contribute ideas in order to raise the awareness of all parties, including the decision makers and policy makers, through the publication of this book. Thus, gender equality perspectives could be reflected in public policy both in the form of the Act, Regulations or Local Area Budget, which in turn can be useful for reducing poverty faced by women in Indonesia.
