CAMPAIGN


IBCWE has several campaign activities throughout the year, such as International Women's Day, National Father's Day, 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, and National Women's Day.

International Women's Day

In 1977, International Women's Day was inaugurated as an annual celebration by the United Nations to fight for women's rights and promote world peace.

National Father's Day

Quoted from Harian Kompas, October 10, 2006, the idea of National Father's Day came from the Association of the Sons of the Motherland of Solo. At that time, it was called Hari Bapak Nasional. The Declaration of National Father's Day was made on November 12, 2006, in Solo City, Central Java, Indonesia. Father's Day is considered necessary because fathers are part of the family whose role should not be underestimated.

IBCWE also sees that the father's role in the household and parenting is one of the missions in realizing gender equality. Equal roles and parenting between fathers and mothers in the family allow children to have more diverse career choices, and support mothers to remain in the workforce.

16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence

This is an international campaign to promote the elimination of violence against women worldwide. In Indonesia, Komnas Perempuan is the initiator of this activity. Every year, this activity lasts from November 25 (The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10 (International Human Rights Day).

IBCWE participates in supporting this movement through several activities, such as:

National Women’s Day

Women’s Day in Indonesia is determined on December 22 every year. This was related to the holding of the First Indonesian Women's Congress from 22 until 25 December 1928 in Yogyakarta. This congress was attended by more than 600 women from various backgrounds to fight for women's rights.

But over time, the meaning shifted to a day of respect for the services of mothers or wives who have struggled to do domestic work and take care of the family. On December 22, 2019, the government, organizations, and activists wanted to restore the meaning of the women's movement on Mother's Day by raising various issues, including education, politics, business, and health.
