Age determines status in the household hierarchy with children expected to be obedient and doting to their parents. The father or oldest male is usually the patriarch while women take care of domestic duties. Women have the ability to forge their own careers, and have more rights than women in some other Islamic countries in regard to property, inheritance and divorce. However, most of Indonesian society is still patriarchal and many wives will attribute their success to their husbands ‘allowing’ them to be successful.
In Indonesia, Father's Day is celebrated on 12 November and is not a public holiday. Father's Day in Indonesia was first declared in 2006 in Surakarta City Hall attended by hundreds of people from various community groups, including people from community of inter-religion communication.
