Summary of Indonesia's Gender Analysis

Published By: Asian Development Bank | Published Date: October, 01 , 2015

Indonesia has made significant progress in promoting gender equality. Gender gaps in the youth literacy rate have been eliminated. Near parity in enrollment rates in elementary up to tertiary levels has been achieved. These gains are starting to translate into increased economic and political participation for women, although challenges remain. Female labor force participation rate is low, and women are concentrated in low–paid and low–skilled informal jobs. The maternal mortality rate remains high. Indonesia is ranked 108 on the Human Development Index.
