Perempuan itu Bernama Kartini

(repost pernah dimuat di

Hari ini (21/4/2019), 140 tahun lalu lahirlah seorang Kartini yang dianggap sebagai tokoh wanita pengusung emansipasi wanita. Begitu istimewanya Raden Ajeng Kartini, hingga hari lahirnya setiap tahun selalu diperingati oleh seluruh warga Indonesia. Tak hanya sekedar dijadikan hari khusus setiap tanggal 21 April. Sejumlah seremonial simbolis pun menjadi bagian dari peringatan ini. Dari pawai keliling anak-anak yang berpakaian adat nasional, lomba kebaya, lomba memasak, dan lain-lainnya.
Seminar seputar peran serta perempuan di era modern yang katanya terinspirasi oleh perjuangan Kartini pun selalu menjadi bagian yang tak terpisahkan dari setiap peringatan. Kartini pun menjadi simbol dari sebuah pergerakan feminisme. Entah apakah mereka tahu apa sebenarnya arti feminisme. Apakah demikian yang dicita-citakan seorang Kartini?

National Geographic's #PlanetOrPlastic writing contest

One day i found a National Geographic's #PlanetOrPlastic writing contest announcement on wattpad. In 500 words or less, we were asked to write a story, that was inspired by 2 photos presented. The story can be fiction or non fiction. The photos that was really shaking my mind, one about a tail of little seahorse grasped a cotton bud to swim and another about dolphin and a girl are swimming in the sea full of plastic waste. 

Wow....And that time was the first time finally i really aware with really happens in our planet. How plastic has occupied our planet.

No-one in their daily life within a period of 10 minutes isn't touching something that is made of plastic. It's used in everything from pen you are using, to your glasses, bottle, snack packaging, and many others. Why plastic is so popular?

Because plastic can be flexible or rigid, and its lightness also makes it very appealing. 

But for all the benefits plastic has given us, disposing of products, particularly those designed to be used only once, such as packaging, has become a major environmental issue.

So how big is the problem, what happens once plastic goes into the ocean, and what can we do about it?

So i decided to join the writing contest. O this challenge, i prefer to write a fiction about Sea-horse's family. Honestly, i don't really expect to win. But i'm proud of it.

Would you mind to read and vote it for me? Its on wattpad. My ID is @anginrindu82
The title is "A Cotton Bud for Mommy".
