Daud also said, West Java BKOW has an important role in cutting gender gaps between women and men through empowerment programs.
"The gap is still there. With women's organizations formed, they work and strive to be able to reduce this gap, "Daud said after the inauguration ceremony.
"BKOW's role, of course as a women's organization, should be able to think about how to improve the index of building women, an index to empower women. I think with the empowerment of women this can reduce the number of gender disparities, "he added.
The success of the development of women's empowerment can be seen from two indicators, the Gender Development Index (IPG), and the Gender Empowerment Index (IDG). In West Java, these two indicators have continued to increase in the last five years.
