This research was conducted in Morodemak and Purworejo Village, Demak District, Central Java Province, Indonesia, by focusing on the problem faced by fisherwomen—who go to sea as well as who process the catches—and the activism of Puspita Bahari (fisherwomen organization in Demak). This research seeks to show that women have contributed to the economic progress of coastal communities. This research became a personal research because the researchers have the opportunity to observe the activity of fisherwomen whogo to sea and also in the research process, the researchers participated in the advocacy process to get recognition as fisherwomen. By using Naila Kabeer gender analysis, this research found that the complexity of the problems faced by fisherwomen are layers rangingfrom family, community, market until state levels. The issues of the division of labor, the biased bureaucracy and domestic violence are the three main topics that studied in this paper. Recognition of the identity of fisherwomen becomes an urgency and first step thatshould be realized in order to improve fisherwomen condition.
