"Other members of the household (especially girls and the elderly) may be recruited to undertake a greater part of the housework as women benefiting from a microcredit program spend more time on their businesses. This is illustrated by a survey of 121 women benefiting from the Small Farmers Development Program (SFDP)—launched by the Government of Indonesia in the early 1990s—when their answers were compared to those of a control group of 94 women. The responses showed that the program, which targeted not only women in poor agricultural families but also those active in fishing, home industry, and trading, allowed women beneficiaries to command more contributions from other members of the ...more

"A survey of households in rural Java, Indonesia revealed significant nutritional effects in 1997–1998. Mothers were found to buffer children’s caloric intake, resulting in increased maternal wasting.

The effects of maternal undernutrition were particularly severe for babies conceived and weaned during the crisis (Block et al. 2004)"(14).."In both Thailand and Indonesia, food prices increased significantly in 1997–1999.

"A major cause of the persistence of existing gender roles is that many men in the formal sector work long hours, providing at least a partial explanation of why they are not assuming a greater share of family responsibilities. In countries such as Indonesia, Republic of Korea, and Pakistan, more than 30% of all employees work more than 48 hours per week. Male employees especially tend to work excessive hours—both a consequence and cause of gender stereotypes reinforcing the existing division of labor (Lee, McCann, and Messenger 2007, p. 240)"(6)

“While mental hospitals were for the most part very clean, social care institutions were overcrowded and unsanitary.

“The worst case we found was a woman who was locked up for 15 years, defecating, urinating, eating in the room where she was kept. She was locked up because she had been raiding the neighbors’ crops. As the father was tired of having to pay for the damages, and the advice of traditional healers did not improve her condition, he decided to lock her up in her own house. The windows had been partially boarded up, so it took a while for my eyes to adjust to the darkness. But then I saw this woman crouching on the floor, completely naked, amid a pile of rubble. She was so ...more
