Every 21st of April, Indonesian celebrate Kartini Day. This can be considered a women emancipation day, because Kartini is one of Indonesia’s National Hero that pushes the boundaries for women to stand up for their rights to get education and to speak up. Since this day will be on a Friday, people are just in the mood for a little celebration. Expect to see women wearing Kebaya, because this is our way of saying: we can wear our traditional outfits and still have kick ass! Here’s some event worth attending on that day:
