She is one of national women heroes has been the meaning of emancipation. Emancipation here is the equality a minor to attain independence from high pressure such as the same degree between woman and man in education and other life aspects.
During the period of the Dutch occupation, there are no education for women. The assignments of the women were to end up giving birth and stay in the kitchen all the time. But, it was different with men because they were free to do something.
As an aristocratic Javanese woman, Kartini was a lucky woman who got high level education. But she was so sad when she was hearing a lot of barriers in education for women.
