Indonesia's democratic transition, although on the one hand, successfully reforms women's political rights through the reform of constitutional mechanisms through constitutional reform as well as national legislation, such as quota-issue policy, but on the other hand fails to make substantial changes in the process of democratization. The issues of women are still seen as an issue of welfare which is closely related to poverty reduction and the protection of marginalized groups. The emphasis on women's experience is one of the feminist inputs, namely the concept of subjectivity. First, the discussion of the problem of subjectivity will examine the problem of role-taking and the creation of knowledge. Second, how people internalize the existing norms. Third, how self, selfhood is formed as a social actor. Fourth, is how the relationship between consciousness with everyday events. There are three records concerning the impact of regional autonomy on women. First, the tendency of strengthening of identity politics, politicization of religion, and cultural revitalization nuanced restriction public role of women. Second, regional autonomy does not necessarily improve the welfare of a community is characterized by more budget allocations for local government implementation costs than the welfare of the community. Third, the active participation of women in policy-making is still very minimal. There are several things women need to fight for, such as trying to develop public awareness that the policy-making process at the local level should involve all the elements. Then the need for awareness of all levels of society that women are the elements of society that become the main pillar in building local democracy, therefore the aspiration of women should be the main consideration in the process of policy making.
