Abstract

This research explores the implementation of gender mainstreaming policy in Indonesia in the development of water supply in Kulon Progo and Central Lombok districts. It deals with three issues: translation of gender mainstreaming strategies by local authorities; the impact of the implementation of gender mainstreaming on women's role and status; and factors affecting participation and involvement of rural women in decision-making processes at the community level. Using a qualitative approach, the study found that state gender ideology, ethnic traditions and Islamic values position women as objects of development, constraining women from making autonomous choices in daily life.
