Law Services for Indonesian Women’s Empowerment (LBH-P21)
LBH-21 (founded 1995) is based in South Sulawesi and was led by local activist and lawyer Christina Joseph untill she passed in 2003. It established the first women’s crisit centre in South Sulawesi, which handles cases such as domestic violence, rape, and state-sponsored violence. Known in Indonesia as KDRT (kekerasan dalam rumah tangga, or ‘violence in the household’), LBH-P21 provides women with legal assistance when cases are filed with the police, because women are notoriously ‘unseen’ in regards to the law.
