Extrait de la préf. : "This report, in seven chapters, examines the current situation of women in Indonesia. It identifies major gender gaps and issues in socioeconomic and human development. Chapter 1 is a gender situation analysis, drawing attention to both old and new challenges for gender equality. The chapter includes discussion of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Human Development Index, the Gender Development Index, and the Gender Empowerment Measure. Chapter 2 explores the legal framework and institutional mechanisms that promote gender equality at national and subnational levels. Chapters 3-6 analyze the four key themes that came out of the CGA consultation process. Chapter 3 focuses on the decentralization process and its impacts on gender equality concerns as well as the status of women at the regional level. Chapter 4 explores women's participation in politics and political decision making, and identifies major constraints to women's involvement. Chapter 5 examines violence against women in different settings, from the domestic arena to postconflict situations and the growing concerns about trafficking of women. Chapter 6 analyzes gender issues in international migration. The final chapter, Chapter 7, summarizes the seven main findings of the report and outlines recommendations for addressing gender gaps in each area. The appendices provide more in-depth socioeconomic data for the five provinces where the consultations took place, and summarize recommendations for mainstreaming gender concerns in the Medium-Term Development Plan 20042009. This report is a call to all stakeholders - government, donor agencies, NGOs, and civil society to renew their focus on gender and development issues in Indonesia."
