This course will study various issues related to women and politics. Politics and political science, have been developed in a malestream way that women do not considered as politically relevant to all of its studies and analysis. In the on going social and political transformation in Indonesia, women are often marginalized in many discourses and policy making. This course will, then, seek to answer most relevant questions regarding the development in nowadays’ politics and political science, such as: what is the unique role of a course on women and politics? Why do we see women as being worthy of study in the field of political science?
- To introduce students on the significant parts of gender and women’s perspectives in contemporary political science
- To introduce students on the relevant and crucial issues on women in regard to recent development of politics in everyday lives, both locally and globally, in how it implicates to the larger part of the society
- To raise sensitivity and awareness on gender sensitive issues in nowadays’ social and political changes in Indonesia
- To have sharp discussions and analyses on various angles and aspects on women in politics and political science
- Students are expected to read the readings before class and submit a response paper on each class’ topic. Discussions in the class will highly depend on students understanding and response to each reference given beforehand regarding the topics of the classes.
- Student grade will be based on:
- Class participation (10%)

One page (typewritten, double-spaced) response to the reading assignment for the week will be due on the above due dates. You must use a 12-pt font. The response paper is an opportunity for you to explore aspects of the readings that interest or puzzle you. It is a way for the instructors, to glimpse your perspective on the issues raised. Following are some helpful hints for writing a good response paper:
- Review and summarize the point you wish to discuss in the paper.
- Look for flaws in the author’s reasoning or research.
- Ask yourself if the ideas relate to anything in current political news or your experiences.
- As the course progresses, compare and contrast one author with another.
The response paper is a formal writing assignment. Writing style and grammar will be graded. Grades will be based on the variety and clarity of comments. If you think that you may have to miss a class, you should turn in your response papers before class. Any late submission can only be tolerated one day after the class by handing it to the Secretariat Staff, Program Pasca Sarjana Ilmu Politik, FISIP, Depok, Or directly to the lecturers (Chusnul Mar’iyah, Room 14 Gedung Koentjoroningrat, Depok).
Some suggestions for writing a good response paper:
- Be careful in how you select the aspect of the readings on which you will write. Select something that is interesting to you and inspires critical comments.
- Find other work by the author you have selected. What is the author’s background? How does this work fit with other scholarship produced by the author?
- Be critical. What is the author’s argument? Does he or she provide ample or convincing evidence for the argument? Is the work organized well? What are the author’s sources? Are they primary or secondary sources? What did you learn from the text? Is the work relevant to a contemporary political event, personal experience or observation?
- Keep quotations from the text to a minimum and document ones that you use by citing them in endnotes.
