Abstract

Research on Shifting the Role of Women in Hindu Family in religious life at Denpasar City is very interesting to be studied scientifically, because the social life of urban communities in the modern and global era is very complex so it is obliged to make adjustments as an effort to maintain its existence in the lives of urban communities. This study aims to find out and describe how much there has been a shift and what things are driving the shift in the role of Women in Hindu family in religious life in the city of Denpasar. The research proves that there has been a shift in the role of Women in Hindu family in religious life in Denpasar City, due to the development of science and technology, family economic demands, and the inclusion of global cultural factors that have changed various aspects of the joint life of Hindu women. To avoid the shifting role of Hindu women, efforts have been made through religious / customary institutions, local wisdom, and customs in religious community groups as an effort to prevent it, but it seems to continue to experience shifts, both positive and negative. So, women in the concept of Hinduism, culture, and Balinese customs have a very important and central role in family, community and religious life, but as a result of the development of time and science and technology, the role of Hindu family women has experienced a shift, both in life family, community and religion.
