  I. BACKGROUND The UN Convention
on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) has been
ratified for 32 years by Indonesian Government and adopted in the Law No.7 of
1984. Since its ratification of CEDAW, the government of Indonesia has made various
efforts for the advancement of women’s rights. For instance, passing Domestic
Violence Law No. 23 of 2004 is a milestone for the elimination of domestic
violence; enacting Presidential Decree No.9 of 2000 on Gender Mainstreaming in
National Development is an important policy strategy to mainstream gender into
national development; and stipulated Anti-Trafficking Law No. 21 of 2007 that
criminalized debt bondage, labor exploitation, sexual exploitation and
transnational and internal trafficking. 
Yet discrimination against women remains, and many cases of violence
against women have occurred without receiving justice. There are a number of
obstacles and restrictions that impede women from realizing their right of
access to justice. These obstacles occur in a structural context of
discrimination and inequality, due to factors such as gender stereotyping,
discriminatory laws, intersecting discrimination and a
failure to systematically ensure that judicial mechanisms are physically,
economically, socially and culturally accessible to all women. All of these
obstacles constitute persistent violations of women’s human rights.   CEDAW highlights in
the General Recommendation No.30 on Access to Justice that the realization of
the rights of access to justice is essential and protected under the articles
of the Convention. The right to
access to justice is multidimensional. It encompasses justiciability,
availability, accessibility, good-quality and accountability of justice
systems, and provision of remedies for victims. By ratifying CEDAW, state
parties are obliged to ensure that women have access to justice. This
obligation encompasses the protection of women’s rights against all forms of
discrimination in a view of empowering women as individual and rights holders.
Effective access to justice optimizes the emancipatory and transformative
potential of law.   In a view of good governance, access to justice is a
fundamental element together with impartiality, integrity and credibility of
the judiciary to fight against impunity and corruption, and ensure equal
participation of women in the judiciary and law implementation. An enabling environment is a condition where substantive equality to
women in the enjoyment of their rights as provided in international covenants
is respected, promoted, and fulfilled. These are women’s human rights in the
civil, political, economic, social and cultural.  UN Women and Access to
