Sejumlah perempuan yang tergabung dalam Pusat Pembelajaran Perempuan dan Anak (P3A) Putri Arimbi desa Demangrejo, Sentolo, Kulon Progo mendiskusi persoalan gender dan kesetaraan antara perempuan dan laki-laki pada Minggu (14/5) yang dipandu oleh pendamping komunitas Mitra Wacana Women Resource Center (WRC) Ignas Kleruk Mau dan Ngatiyar.
Menurut Ignas, pembahasan gender dalam pertemuan bulanan ini sengaja dilakukan untuk membuka pandangan bagi para peserta agar semakin memahami apa itu gender, apa itu pembedaan laki-laki dan perempuan yang disampaikan dengan bahasa sederhana. Jadi isu gender perlu dibahas karena masih banyak warga yang belum paham, Ignas menuturkan.
Selain mendiskusikan gender, para peserta juga diajak untuk belajar proses pembuatan telor asin. Para peserta yang sebagian besar adalah anggota P3A Putri Arimbi tampak antusias mengikuti pertemuan tersebut hingga usai.
