This study aims to determine the utilization of women's political networks in gaining opportunities for strategic positions in parliament, the contribution of Batak women in parliament in determining policies, and traditional political construction experienced by women who experience changes in parliament. The research uses qualitative research with a descriptive approach. Meanwhile data is collected through observation, interviews, and documentation studies. The results of the study explained that the existence of women in the utilization of political networks has the opportunity for strategic positions in the regional legislature (North Sumatra DPRD) through synergy with the North Sumatra DPRD Commission, the Women's Empowerment Agency (BPP) and the establishment of the Parliamentary Women's Caucus (KPP). The contribution of women, especially the Batak ethnic groups in parliament, is not optimal because of the weak decision making. Traditional political construction experienced by women experienced changes in parliament, but the motives and commitments of Batak ethnic women's work in the North Sumatra Legislatives (DPRD) are still around the interests of parties and individuals who are hegemony in patriarchal culture.
