The Day to Honour Indonesian National Hero

Kartini Day is an Indonesian holiday celebrated in memory of Ajeng Kartini’s birth, a national heroine honoured for her efforts in fighting for women’s rights. Raden Ajeng Kartini was born on the 21st of April 1879, and is one of the country’s most recognisable faces. Hailed as the country’s first feminist, Kartini is the symbol of women’s strength in a world that is fraught with gender inequality and the suppression of women’s rights. Kartini’s desire to see women freed from the shackles of repressive laws and beliefs made her a heroine. Her legacy lives on today, and this celebration is testament to her resilience.Today, Kartini Day is celebrated on the 21st of April every year not only in Bali but through out Indonesia, by wearing traditional clothing such as the kebaya, as well as make up competitions, fashion shows, fruit bazaars and clothing that supports the people’s economy, not to mention a one day seminar about women’s right.
