Surjono, Y Prasisca, FR Sutikno
Procedia – Social and Behavioral Sciences 211, 370-374
Gender is one of national development’s issues in Indonesia, while social capital has been proven as a development generator. This paper observed the linkage between gender inequality, which was assessed by GII, and social capital, which was analyzed by SOCAT. The research shows that GII scores, ranging from 0.32 to 0.49, were higher than national average. The GII scores correspond to social capital’s score. It indicates that gender equality is significant to social capital in Indonesia. The findings prescribe that if development paradigm in Indonesia is based on social capital, then gender development should be part of national development focuses.
