Economic growth involves not only natural resources and capital resources. The growth of a country's economy can be achieved because of the active participation of both men and women. The purpose of this study is to examine gender and employment issues in national development. The importance of engaging gender issues in development programs in Indonesia was not only done and felt by the male population, but also women. Based on data that have been analyzed descriptively, shows that labor in Indonesia is still dominated by men although the difference is relatively small. This is because the women are still low educated so the opportunity to get a job was reduced and eventually unemployed. Therefore, it is necessary to review the policy regarding labor and to do a special approach to make it balance.
