Gender equality is the equality of the roles of man and women in all fields of life, apart from natural problems. Indonesian peoples still have misunderstandings in interpreting gender differences. Both in discussing the issue of the reality life, the relationship of husband and wife in the village, women workers, especially office workers who are still very rare. This factor occurs because it is dominated by the peasant community. People who are still lacking in understanding gender equality in building a family relationship. A nature and natural law that women follow what their husbands order. Villagers assume that women's duty is only to take care of the house and help their husbands as much as possible without imposing it. In the sense that women's activities are more at home than exploring their abilities beyond their responsibilities as mothers. Coupled with the existence of State regulation was also stated in the Marriage Law No. 1 of 1974 paragraph 3 that the husband is the head of the family and the wife is a housewife. Even if husband and wife work together, it can improve the economic quality of the family.
