Abstract

Investigating women’s participation in politics might be beneficial for the improvements of communication studies, especially in political communication studies. This research’s objective is to analyze the involvement of a group of women in a religious Islamic movement in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. This research applied a descriptive qualitative research design by conducting semi- structured interviews to ten women from two political women groups in East Kalimantan. The results of the research suggest that the informants posit their acceptance to a particular male and female legislative candidates due to these candidates’ stances in religious beliefs and the candidates’ credibilities. The results suggest that these informants have a strong awareness to actively participate in politics, suggesting that women are aware of the importance of politics in their daily life.
