Abstract

Being a self-identified feminist is controversial among women's rights activists and scholars. This relates to different interpretations of and positive and negative associations with the term 'feminist' in society. The research presented here discusses the different 'feminist' identities and other labels among activists and scholars at Indonesian universities and explores what 1eminist' means for them. Respondents come from Pusat Studi Wanita (Centres for Women's Studies) or Pusat Studi Gender (Centres for Gender Studies) at six universities in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Many respondents acknowledge that Western feminists are able to raise awareness of gender issues, strengthen feminist identity, and build up faith in Islam. The paper, however. also addresses the question of why some reject the 'feminist' label.
