Women’s representation in politics in Indonesia has
been secured despite inequal percentage compared to the men.
For instance, the results of the 2019 legislative elections for
women only accounted for 20.5% or 118 seats of the 560 existing
seats. On the other hand, it seems that the performance of women
in parliament is also questionable. Thus, this research was
conducted to find out and understand how was the performance
of women politicians, their contribution to women empowerment
and the obstacles they faced. This descriptive-explorative
qualitative research was conducted in Ponorogo as a district in
the former Residency of Madiun which always gets the highest
number of women politicians in each elections until 2019. The
research subjects were selected using purposive sampling toward
women legislature members of DPRD Ponorogo. Meanwhile,
the data was obtained through interviews, observation, and
documentation. Furthermore, for the data analysis the author
employed Harvard gender analysis and used data triangulation
as one of the data verification techniques. The results of this
study concluded that the performance of women legislative
members was less satisfactory. This can be seen from 3 aspects;
responsiveness, accountability and effectiveness. In addition,
some obstacles they faced are (a) the strong patriarchal culture in
the legislative environment, (b) weak coordination among women
legislative members, (c) patterns of relationships that are built on
a transactional basis, and (d) politically charged programs.
