Happy (belated) Kartini Day!

“Perputaran zaman tidak akan pernah membuat wanita menyamai laki-laki. Wanita tetaplah wanita dengan segala kemampuan dan kewajibannya. Yang harus berubah adalah wanita harus mendapat pendidikan dan perlakukan yang lebih baik. Wanita harus sehat jasmani dan rohani, berakhlak dan berbudi pekerti luhur, taat beribadah yang kesemuanya hanya akan terpenuhi dengan mempunyai ilmu pengetahuan,"
Rohana Kudus*

English translation by my self:
"Rotation of the ages would never similize women to men. Women will be women with all their capabilities and their obligation. Things that must be changed are women have to get proper treatment and education. To have physical and spiritual health, to be virtuous and righteous, also to be devout worship are must for women. Those all will be fulfilled only with education."

*Rohana Kudus is the first woman journalist in Indonesia. She is from Padang, West Sumatera, and proactive to spread the discourse of education to Indonesian women through what she wrote in newspaper.

Happy Kartini Day April 21st Indonesian Women!
