Raden Ajeng Kartini was born into an aristocratic Javanese family and despite the shortness of her life, is widely known and respected as the founder and inspiration of Indonesia's Women's Movement. These letters to a Dutch pen friend she had never met were written They show the clear educational and reform ambitions maintained by Kartini who, by enforced custom, had left school at the age of 12, but who continued to read, study and develop nationalist and feminist ideas. These she shared with reform-minded contacts. Her arranged marriage was followed by her death shortly after childbirth.

Kartini Raden Adjeng. The letters Raden Ajeng Kartini wrote from her home in East Java to Stella Zeehandelaar, the 'modern girl' in Amsterdam, are amongst the most powerful and stirring of the many letters she wrote in the last four years of her life. They express both her passionate hope and powerful aspiration to bring about change - in her own life, to the position of Javanese women, to colonised Java - and reflect the deep disappointment she experienced and the compromises she had to make. Inspired by the European feminist writing of her day, these letters reveal how Kartini transformed these ideas into a manifesto for the emancipation of Javanese women and a platform for the decolonisation of Java. They trace the path from personal aspiration to the liberation of all women, from a concern for the position of women, to a radical assessment of colonial politics.
