Metrotvnews.com, Kuala Lumpur: The representatives of Indonesian People's Representative Council (DPR RI) attended the women's meeting at the 36th Inter-parliamentary Plenary Session of ASEAN (AIPA) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Women Parliamentarians of AIPA (WAIPA) was opened by AIPA President Tan Sri Datuk Sei Panlinga Pandikar Amin Mulia.

Indonesian delegation was led by Sarwo Budhi Wiryanti Sukamdani, or Yanti, as she explained the two themes proposed by Indonesia at the women's meeting.

"First is the gender equality, and secondly is the culture of respecting women and female children," she said at the Sarawak Room, Shangri-La Hotel, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Monday (9/7/2015).

Yanti, who was accompanied by Melanie Leimena Suharli, explained that 10 ASEAN countries were present in the meeting, but Indonesia had become an important nation as it has many policies representing the women.

"In our parliament, there are lots of women and gender laws. As many as 30 percent of the parliament members, or related to the parties, are female, it is one of them. And in Indonesia, there is a regulation for women, trafficking," she mentioned.

Therefore, Yanti said, Indonesia is to urge for the results of the meeting to be applied. Because Indonesia has been more developed than several ASEAN countries, as proven with its previous female president.

"Well, this can be followed by other ASEAN nations. As this is not applied well, we were often asked about the implementation and application in Indonesia," Yanti explained.
