Raden Adjeng Kartini (April 21, 1879 - September 17, 1904), sometimes known as Raden Ayu Kartini, is a Prominent Indonesia National Hero from Java Island. She was also a pioneer in the area of education for girls and equalizing women's right for Indonesians.
Born into an aristocratic Javanese family in Jepara, the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia, she attended a Dutch language Primary School. She aspired to attend further education but the option "was unavailable to her and other girls in Javanese society". She came into contact with various officials and influencing people including J.H. Abendanon, in charge of implementing the Dutch Ethical Policy.
Kartini wrote letters about Her feelings and they were published in a Dutch Magazine with titles of: "Out of Darkness to Light", "Women's Life in the Village", and "Letters of a Javanese Princess".
Her Birthday is now celebrated as Kartini Day in Indonesia. She opposed "polygamy". Her advocacy for the education of girls was continued by Her Sisters.
So this YE139KAR Special Call is celebrating 139th. Birthday of RA. Kartini, thus 2018 Indonesia Kartini Day.
