By Raden Ajeng Kartini

Contributions by: Joost Coté

Raden Ajeng Kartini (1879-1904) lived in Jepara, Central Java, and was inspired by the European feminist writing of her day. She held a strong interest in applying European feminist concerns to Javanese society. Her pioneering work for freedom and education of women has made her an Indonesian national hero. The letters in this revised edition, to the contemporary European feminist Stella Zeehandelaar, are amongst the most powerful of Kartini's surviving correspondence.
