Speaking on behalf of the Women's Group in the Majelis Rakyat Papua (Papuan People's Council), Ibu Rode Ros Muyasin said that indigenous Papuan women are as equally capable as Papuan men. However, the problem is that they have never been given the space to display their capabilities.

One example is that although a quota has been set for women to occupy thirty percent of the seats in the legislature, this quota has never been achieved.

She said that as a result of the fact that women extremely rarely occupy positions of strategic importance, either in government or in other areas, such as political affairs, they have not been given the opportunity to show their capabilities.

She went on to say many dirty tricks were being played, making it very difficult for women to compete with men . She called on all elements in society to foster the involvement of women in society. because they need the space to be able to compete on an equal footing in all activities, adding that this was stipulated in the Special Autonomy Law for Papua which endorses the principles of protection, support and empowerment of indigenous Papuan women.

With regard to the quota of thirty percent of seats for women in the legislature, she said that according to the principles of justice, this should be 50:50. But the fact is that even the thirty percent quota has not been achieved. Women's position within the special eleven extra seats in the legislature is also not at all clear.

She urged all people in Papua to make sure that women enjoy the same proportionate role as men.

'There must be an end to gender discrimination, to the continuing stigmatisation of Papuan women as being of incapable.
