The Monograph Series No. 5: Women and Girls in Indonesia
01 October, 2015
The Gender monograph is the fifth and final monograph in this series. It is comprised of five themes: the demographic characteristics of male and female population, education, employment, family formation, feminization of ageing, and housing. It provides policy makers, academicians, and practitioners with the most up to date information about gender related issues derived from analysis of the census and other relevant sources of data.
This monograph will also be useful to inform gender-sensitive public policies and programmes that lead to the advancement of women in Indonesia.
UNFPA has a strong mandate to promote women’s empowerment and gender equality. The Fund’s core missions of furthering sexual and reproductive health and supporting high quality and consistent national-level data collection are pillars of poverty reduction, gender equality and development.
