Abstract

This paper will address women's political participation in politics, especially in politics actively, such as parliamentarians, although politics can be broad-based. This is because the position of women as leaders or as legislators is often disputed. The participation of women in parliament, with a hectic schedule, mingle with men, and so on is very time-consuming outdoors. At the same time, having abandoned his role and function as wife and mother of his children is a pretext used to sue women's participation in practical politics. This is the reason that politics as the world of men, so the involvement of women is still considered some people as unusual for women. Islam has given guidance in life. Men and women have the same right to participate in politics, as one part of the implementation of God's trust, khalifatullah fil area. Classical and modern scholars differ on the political rights of women. This difference relates to their respective concepts of the character of this field. The earlier scholars put the issue of general freedom which meant elemental powers such as the rule-making power, in contrast to contemporary scholars who emphasize the equality of rights.
