Jakarta. Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti said Kartini — an Indonesian national heroine whose birthday is commemorated as Kartini Day on April 21 — has inspired generations of Indonesian women through her writing.

Born into an aristocratic Javanese family in Rembang, Central Java, in what was then the Dutch East Indies, Kartini attended a Dutch-language elementary school but despite repeated protests was denied the opportunity to further her education.

At the age of 24 Kartini was married off to the district head of Rembang, Central Java, who let her open a school for girls in 1903. A year later, Kartini died after giving birth to her first and only son.

Kartini wrote many letters explaining her predicament to her pen pals in the Netherlands, which were published in a Dutch magazine and later in anthologies.

There have been several collections of Kartini's letters, the most notable being "Out of Darkness, Into the Light," "Women’s Life in the Village" and "Letters of a Javanese Princess."

She is now widely recognized as one of the pioneers of women empowerment in Indonesia.

"She was very creative. She showed through her letters that she had strong points of view which combined the knowledge she learned from her Dutch education with local wisdom," Susi said during an interview in Jakarta on Friday (22/04), as reported by state news agency Antara.

The minister said she has always looked up to Kartini as an inspiration.

"I learn from her that women are equal to men. I can do anything a man can do," Susi said.

Susi said Indonesia needs more inspiring women like Kartini.

"Women are great with planning and organizing. There should be more of us in prominent positions," she said.

Susi said Indonesian women should break away from restrictions placed on them by traditional values.

"Get a job and move on. Have a career. Be a successful women. Stop thinking you're not supposed to do things just because you are a woman. Stop thinking that your gender restricts you in any way," the minister said.

Cibubur Junction, a shopping mall in East Jakarta operated by Lippo Malls Indonesia, is hosting a series of events called "Womenity" from April 16 to May 14 to celebrate Kartini Day, a statement received by the Jakarta Globe on Monday (17/04) said. Kartini Day, which falls on April 21, commemorates the birthday of Indonesian heroine Raden Ajeng Kartini who fought for women's rights in the the late 19th century and early 20th century. Cibubur Junction has prepared events for all visitors, but mostly targeted at mothers and children. Every Tuesday, moms can join beauty classes, cooking demos, or hijab style workshops depending on the schedule. A weekly drawing contest is available every Thursday. Children can also wear national costumes and compete in the "Little Kartini Fashion Competition" on April 30. Elementary school students are also able to join the "CJ Junior Marching Band Competition" on May 6. "Womenity" is also supported by Fitness First, which celebrates its 11th anniversary this April. The fitness center will hold a miscellaneous sports contest, "Tough Mom Challenge," for moms on April 26. The final event of "Womenity" is the "Lucky Fiesta 4" lucky draw which has been collecting entries since August last year. The main prize is a Honda Mobilio car. While the events last, visitors can enter a lucky dip by spending a minimum of Rp 500,000 ($37.5) at any store except Matahari Department Store and Hypermart, where they will have to spend at least Rp 1,000,000. Besides getting a ticket to the draw, women drivers will also get 50 percent off their parking fees on Wednesdays.

In commemoration of the birth of national heroine Kartini on Friday (21/04), women in government offices and schools wear kebayas or other traditional costumes to celebrate this special day. "I think it's more than a mere ceremonial or symbolical gesture," Taruna K. Kusmayadi, adviser at the Indonesia Fashion Chamber (IFC), said during a talk show at AlunAlun in the Grand Indonesia shopping center in Central Jakarta on Thursday. "By wearing traditional costumes on Kartini Day, we adopt Kartini's spirit for women's independence and betterment and perpetuate that spirit in today's generation," Taruna said. Kartini, who was born and raised in an aristocratic family in Central Java, fought against restrictions on young aristocratic Javanese women of her era by educating herself with books and communicating her ideas through letters to her Dutch friends. Kartini's letters were later compiled into a book "Habis Gelap Terbitlah Terang" ("Out of Dark Comes Light"). The book has since become a source of inspiration and prompted many improvements in the lives of Indonesian women. "Until this day, Kartini remains an inspiration for us all," Taruna said. "We should be proud of her and also be proud to wear traditional costumes, not only on Kartini Day, but also in our daily lives." However, wearing a tight-fitting kebaya and kain (pareo) may not be very practical for today's fast-paced lifestyle. Therefore, IFC designers have developed a series of modern kebayas that would be suitable for modern women. "The way to perpetuate traditional costumes is by adjusting them to today's women's needs," IFC national deputy chairman Wignyo Rahadi said. "The traditional costumes should maintain our cultural identity, without losing their modern functionality." In a fashion show following Thursday's talk show, Wignyo showcased a series of simple kebayas, made from handwoven fabrics produced in his workshop in Sukabumi, West Java. "These fabrics are made by women in my neighborhood that used to work in the backbreaking brick industry," Wignyo said. "I train them to weave so that they can make a better living for themselves and their families." The simple silhouette and relaxed fit of Wignyo's kebayas allow wearers more room for movement. The soft pastel hues of his kebayas also complimented the models' fair complexions. Inge Chu, fashion designer of the IFC's Semarang chapter, also showcased her mini-kebaya collection during the fashion show. [caption id="attachment_655797" align="aligncenter" width="245"]Inge Chu's kebaya. (JG Photo/Sylviana Hamdani) Inge Chu's kebaya. (JG Photo/Sylviana Hamdani)[/caption] Inge's kebayas, made of lace, tulle, duchess silk and organdy silk, also have a relaxed fit, as well as pretty bell sleeves. The bodice and hemlines are adorned with arabesque-pattern embroideries. The kebayas were paired with pareos and long pants made of natural-dyed batiks from her hometown, Semarang, Central Java. The exquisite colors of the natural-dyed batiks complimented Inge's semi-transparent kebayas. Hannie Hananto chairwoman of the IFC's Jakarta chapter, also presented a series of kebaya-inspired Muslim clothing for women during the event. "I truly appreciate today's event and fashion show," National Handicraft Council (Dekranas) chairwoman Erni Tjahjo Kumolo said after the show. "The kebayas are all very beautiful and elegant, as well as modern and wearable." "I hope that this event would inspire today's Indonesian women to be proud of their cultural roots and wear kebaya much more often," Erni added.

Iconic Women awardees showcased Iwan’s collection of elegant evening dresses in earth tone color patterns with sharp and dazzling heels. One of the most eye-catching pieces displayed at Wednesday's event included a white batik dress combined with a cape and shoulder pads, exuding a chic yet swanky look.

Celebration of her birthday is also a commemoration of the century-long struggle for women's rights in Indonesia. A daughter of Jepara regent, Kartini attended a Dutch primary school. After six years, she was fluent in Dutch — an unusual achievement for a Javanese women at the time. Kartini also became fond of Western ideals. Born into an aristocratic Javanese family, at the age of 12 she was told to leave school and stay at home to prepare for marriage. She aspired to pursue her education, but it was not possible. During her seclusion, she wrote letters to her former sewing teacher, Marie, her former schoolmates, Dutch feminist Stella Zeehandelaar, and Dutch official Jacques. H. Abendanon. In her letters, she expressed her dissent with the gender inequality in Javanese tradition, forced marriages, and denying women the freedom to pursue education. She also spent a lot of time reading Dutch newspapers, books and  magazines, opening her to European feminism. It ignited her desire to fight for women's rights. With her linguistic background, Kartini became a regular contributor to Dutch magazine De Hollandsche Lelie ("The Dutch Lily"). At the age of 24, she married Rembang regent Raden Adipati Joyodiningrat, 26 years her senior. In 1903, Kartini opened the first Indonesian primary school for Javanese girls. The school was opened to all, regardless of their social status, and adopted a progressive Western curriculum. On Sept. 17, 1904, Kartini died in labor. Inspired by her, the Van Deventer family established the R. A. Kartini Foundation and opened "Kartini schools" in Central Java's Semarang, Yogyakarta, and in Malang and Surabaya in East Java. Kartini's pen pal Abendanon, Minister for Culture, Religion and Industry in the Dutch East Indies, compiled and published her letters as "Door Duisternis tot Licht," ("Out of Darkness Comes Light"). The book was published in 1911 and translated into English as "Letters of a Javanese Princess." Kartini Day is celebrated on Apr. 21 across Indonesia.
