Abstract

This study aims to describe how the perception of gender roles in the Implementation of the Family Hope Program (FHP) in Kuantan Singingi Regency, Province Riau. The FHP program is part of the Family-Based Integrated Social Assistance Program Group.

This is in line with Presidential Instruction No. 9 of 2000 concerning Gender Mainstreaming and Presidential Instruction No. 3 of 2010 concerning Equitable Development. Suggestions that can be conveyed in this study: (1) increase the understanding of FHP recipient families to affirm gender equality and gender roles in the household, (2) provide equal roles, and equal opportunities as in decision making, division of tasks and functions at home household and social, education, responsibility for improving the quality of family and social life (3) improving the position of women in decision making, because women already hold the cash from FHP assistance, (4) providing space for women to be involved in social activities. The position of women in the FHP program is in line with Mosser's theory which mentions three roles (triple role) of women in the family, namely reproductive roles, productive roles, and social roles.
