Abstract

Gender equality and justices are not only the nation's problems but the worlds. Gender problems and injustices are manifested in conditions of subordination, violence, and deprivation of rights that many women experience. If the women's empowerment program directly intervenes with women who are victims of gender injustice, the goal of realizing justice and gender will not be realized because many of the problems stem from men. This study uses a descriptive qualitative approach with literature study and document study methods, in which researchers who study previous studies related to gender-based social movements and collect documents related to this study. Then the researcher discusses these findings by using Alberto Melucci's theory which according to him the formation of a new social movement cannot be separated from the conflict situations experienced by many people at that time. The result of this research is that many gender-based organizations are discussing issues of gender equality and justice. The organization consists of organizations initiated by the women's movement as well as the men's movement. In Indonesia, the emergence of the men's movement to solve these problems is slower when compared to countries in Southeast Asia and the world. This social movement is represented in the form of the New Men's Alliance movement through which gender issues are widely discussed.
