OXFAM

Oxfam is a leading aid, development and campaigning not-for-profit organisation with a world-wide reputation for excellence and over 60 years’ experience working in Indonesia. Our purpose is to work with others to overcome suffering and find lasting solutions to poverty. Currently we are looking for:

  • Video Producer for offline and online Campaign
  • Comic Artist to produce series of comic
Background

According to UN estimates, 35% of women worldwide had experienced physical or sexual violence (UN Women, 2016). With 321,752 cases of violence against women reported in 2015 (Komnas Perempuan, 2016), Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) is also big issue for Indonesia. VAWG can take many forms including sexual harassment, child forced marriage, domestic violence, public discrimination, and marginalisation; all of which are caused by a deeply rooted gender inequality. This condition is exacerbated by the religious and cultural settings in Indonesia that condones violence against women and girls. 

Addressing VAWG remains an important part of Oxfam’s effort to create a just world without poverty. This is particularly reflected in one of Oxfam’s global goal on achieving women’s right. Further, as raising the awareness of public, changing the norms against the society, and increasing solidarity among women on VAWG remains an essential part to address VAWG; since 2015 Oxfam in Indonesia participated in the 16 days of Activism campaign. This year, Indonesia will take its campaign against VAWG further by linking it to the Oxfam International’s global campaign on Ending Violence Against Women (EVAW).

In order to address ending VAWG, Oxfam will address the underpinning social norms that lead to unequal gender power relation in more than 30 countries. By working together as one, Oxfam will increase its influence and impact by maximising societal condemnation on VAWG and consequently encourage policy changes in to end VAWG. However, how the campaign in every country will be tailored according to the country needs and specifics.

Oxfam in Indonesia decided to focus on addressing the campaign on ending Child, Early, and Forced Marriage (CEFM). 

Although Indonesia has frequently been praised for having significant progress in reducing CEFM, particularly in rural areas, child marriage prevalence remains persistently high. According to the UNICEF, around 17% of women in Indonesia were wedded before the age of 18 (UNICEF, 2015). The high number of child marriage prevalence in Indonesia are associated to, among others, these following factors: (1) strong cultural and religious traditions which stated that girls are fit to be married once reaching puberty; (2) economic reasons where girls are perceived as added burden within the family; and (3) legal framework that stated the legal age of marriage for women is 16.
