Powerful women who ruled the land of Java
The assumption that women are weak creatures arises and is very dependent on men. Is that right? The answer is no. Considering many tough women were born on earth. They do not bear the title of woman, but women who, in Javanese understanding, wani are organized (dare to be regulated) and at the same time wani nata (dare to regulate) as men. Not just playing a role in regulating the household, but also regulating the country as a queen. Stated in history in the land of Java, some women who occupy positions as queen, include: Ratu lay Shima (Kalingga), Pramodhawardhani (Medang of the Central Java period of the last Sailendra Dynasty), Sri Isana Tunggawijaya (Medang of the second East Java Period), Tribhuwana Wijayatunggadewi (The third Majapahit), and Sri Suhita (the sixth Majapahit). In addition, the regent of epara appeared before the era of the Aryan Penangsang government in Demak and during the reign of Sultan Hadiwijaya in Pajang, namely Ratu Kalinyamat. Regarding women as queens, not only in Java, but also in Sumatra, West Java, Kalimantan and Sulawesi, such as Sultanah Nahrasiyah (Samudera Pasai); Sri Ratu Safiatuddin Tajul Alam, Sri Ratu Naqiatuddin Nurul Alam, Sri Ratu Zaqiatuddin Inayat Syah, and Sri Ratu Zainatuddin Kamalat Syah (Aceh Darussalam); Mahisa Suramardini Warmandewi and Sphatikarnawa Warmandewi (Salakanagara); Nyi Mas Ratu Patuakan and Nyi Mas Ratu Inten Dewata (Sumedanglarang); Maharatu Mayang Mulawarni (Kutai Martapura); Tumanurung (Gowa); Sultana Zainab Zulkiyahtuddin, l-Danraja Siti Nafisah Karaeng Langelo, We Maniratu Arung Data, and Sri Sultana Fatima (Bone); and Ratu Wa Kaa Kaa and Ratu Bulawambona (Buton). In addition to the queens from Java and outside Java, many mighty women were predicated as empresses, heroes, thinkers, politicians, ministers, and others, including Nyi Ageng Serang (Mataram), Nyi Ontosoroh, Cut Nyak Dhien (Aceh), Cut Nyak Meutea (Aceh), and Martha Christina Tiahahu (Maluku). Therefore, the presence of this content is expected to provide enlightenment for every listener. In addition to inspiring inspiration and spirit in gender equality, this content will be able to uncover the mystery behind the gentleness of attitudes and speech of Javanese women in particular, and the archipelago in general, where one eye is.
