Women in Politics: The (un)power of Emak-emak during 2019 Election Campaign
Ni Luh Ayu Sukmawati

Universitas Airlangga


Cyberfeminists are considered as new media to promote womens opinions. There is one community that determines itself as a cyberfeminist that promotes gender equality, especially for mothers, this community is called the Emak-Emak Community (the Community of Emak-Emak). This community is interesting because its presence is at the time of election contestation in Indonesia 2019. By using cyberfeminist theory, this study analyzes the existence of patriarchal wrappings that exist in the community of Emak-emak. As a result, there is some patriarchal dominance that exists in the community of Emak-emak. The author finds that women in this community are still guided by a man who gives or directs his vision and mission; in the end, this becomes a contradiction with the meaning of cyberfeminist. Afterward, there is a power of dominance from one of the presidential candidates campaign teams to increase the power of their voters.
