Kartini was known as the woman emancipation figure in the Dutch colonial era. She was from an aristocratic Javanese family in Jepara.
Kartini’s family allowed her to attend school until she was 12 years old. Here, among other subjects, she learnt to speak Dutch, an unusual accomplishment for Javanese women at the time. After she turned 12 she was secluded (pingit) at home, a common practice among Javanese nobility, to prepare young girls for their marriage. During seclusion girls were not allowed to leave their parents’ house until they were married. But, Kartini’s father was more lenient during his daughter’s seclusion.
He gave her such privileges as embroidery lessons and occasional appearances in public for special events. During her seclusion, Kartini continued to educate herself on her own. Because she could speak Dutch, she acquired several Dutch pen friends. Books, newspapers and European magazines fed Kartini’s interest in European feminist thinking. This inspired Kartini to improve the conditions of indigenous Indonesian women, who at that time had a very low social status.
Kartini’s concerns were not only in the area of the emancipation of women, but also other problems of her society, such as the struggle for women to obtain their freedom, autonomy and legal equality.
Kartini ‘s parents arranged her marriage to Joyodiningrat, the Regency Chief of Rembang on the 12th of November 1903. Her husband understood Kartini’s aims and allowed her to establish a school for women in the east porch of the Rembang Regency Office complex. Kartini’s only son was born on 13 September 1904. A few days later on 17 September 1904, Kartini died at the age of 25. She was buried in Bulu Village, Rembang. In 1964, President Sukarno declared R.A. Kartini’s birth date, 21 April, as ‘Kartini Day’ – an Indonesian national holiday.
