Abstract
This article discusses about the powerless of West Java’s women in political sphere because of many obstacles. Using a qualitative descriptive paradigm with case study method, data were collected through in-depth interviews both orally and in writing, observation and documentation studies. The informants were drawn from women activists who joined in the Indonesian Women's Political Caucus (KPPI) in West Java. While for the validity and reliability of data, done by triangulation method. The results show that West Java is culturally an agrarian society that tends to be egalitarian, but there are striking differences in the political aspect. On the one hand women have multidimensional and multi gender roles as mothers, wives, workers, family members and social members, while men are more often positioned as breadwinners. In politics, all informants said they did not feel any difference in political competition with men, but social construction in society tended to place men better than women for politics. Even when competing in elections, women always lose the pace and financial strength of men because of several obstacles such as patriarchal culture. Furthermore, it is necessary to develop social construction of women's political reality in West Java through an effective political communication strategy.
