The definition of ‘woman’ in the Indonesian dictionary has recently been reviewed due to its derogatory meaning that simply describes a reproductive person. While this is a strong starting point, the current narrative of women in the media is also in need of critical attention. A leading voice in this discussion is Indonesian visual artist Ika Vantiani. She invites us to look back at the meaning with a critical eye and unpack the application of the word through a fun collage workshop. Everyone is invited to get involved and expand their understanding of what it means to be a woman.

Definisi ‘perempuan’ dalam kamus bahasa Indonesia baru-baru ini ditinjau ulang karena maknanya yang merendahkan yang hanya menggambarkan orang yang sedang berkembang biak. Meskipun ini adalah titik awal yang kuat, narasi perempuan saat ini di media juga perlu mendapat perhatian kritis. Suara utama dalam diskusi ini adalah seniman visual Indonesia Ika Vantiani. Ia mengajak kita untuk melihat kembali maknanya dengan pandangan kritis dan membongkar penerapan kata tersebut melalui lokakarya kolase yang menyenangkan. Setiap orang diundang untuk terlibat dan memperluas pemahaman mereka tentang apa artinya menjadi seorang wanita.
