Kartini Day

Sign reads: Airport

Commemorating Kartini Day on April 21, activists say that 136 years since the birth of the nationalist hero and feminist symbol, many Indonesian women are still forced to seek employment overseas as domestic workers (TKI) due to the lack of employment opportunities at home, where they face extortion, violence and sexual abuse at the hands of employers and unscrupulous employment agencies.
