JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Indonesia's Minister of Women's Empowerment and Child Protection Bintang Puspayoga said that currently, issues in gender inequality remain unresolved. 

"In practice, there are still many unresolved problems regarding the inequality between women and men. This is the homework of all parties to solve the problems," said Bintang in a statement, Monday, June 14.

Increasing the participation of women's leadership and giving them opportunities in the decision-making process of an organization, she said, will help realize excellence in human resources.

In addition, Bintang also stressed the importance of women's contributions in various ways. Of the total Indonesian population, almost half are women. Indonesia’s constitution also protects equal rights between women and men, she added.  

"We hope efforts to realize women's empowerment and child protection can be implemented through synergy and collaboration from various parties, one of which is by organizational groups," Bintang said.
