In this post we will discuss an 1985 Indonesia 10000 Rupiah Banknote. On its front side is an image of heroine (female hero) Raden Ayu Kartini who was an important figure and advocate for women’s rights in Indonesia. She argued that the culture in Java (at the time) did not allow women to develop intellectually as they were often secluded and forced into arranged marriages at young ages. She wrote about these and other issues. After she died a foundation in her name was set up by a Dutch family who built several schools in her name. Later on President Sukarno established a national holiday in her name. Also on the front of this banknote is a picture of Candi Prambanan Temple.
