A Small Measure of Peace


I took this picture at Pasar Wates few months ago. An old woman is seen resting in one corner of the market.

In old times, the role of women in the Javanese community was very limited, social life dominated by men, even there used a stigma that Javanese women only need take care of household needs. So for the Javanese women in past times, traditional markets become one important part in their lives, there in addition to shopping, they also socialize, and show their existence in Javanese society.
