Gender differences do not become a problem if it does not cause gender inequalities. Gender inequalities also arise as a result of the existence of gender roles. One form of gender inequality is workloads. In Indonesia, the differentiation of roles and areas of workload between men and women continues to persist. The domestic sector is an area for women, while the public sector is the responsibility of men. When a woman dares to join the public sector, then she must also have awareness and remain responsible for the domestic sector, or double workloads. This study uses a phenomenological study by taking data through in-depth interviews and literature studies to explore more deeply how women experience workloads in urban and rural communities. The results of this study also want to see how the shifting forms of gender inequalities by women in Indonesia, especially injustices caused by double workloads.
