Does the proliferation of jilbabs (headscarves) in Indonesia since 1998 mean the nation has gone hardline? How did democracy happen in Indonesia, which has the largest population of Muslims in the world, and will it stick? Is the term ‘Muslim feminist’ an oxymoron? Do Muslims even like sex?

Julia’s Jihad provides the answer to these questions and much, much more: how the nation struggles to maintain the ‘unity in diversity’ of its 300 ethnic groups; how it practices ‘political cannibalism’ to deal with to its human rights problems; how environmentally we ‘burn our own house down’, and a whole lot of the other weird and wacky things that make Indonesia the fascinating bundle of contradictions it is.


Buku ini merupakan kumpulan esai pemikiran Julia selama 8 tahun yang pernah dimuat di The Jakarta Post dan majalah Tempo edisi bahasa Inggris. Tulisan Julia terasa tajam dan segar saat mengupas kompleksitas permasalahan di negeri ini. Mulai dari identitas wanita muslim, gerakan sosial, kebijakan publik, tradisi, kapitalisasi agama, hingga hak asasi manusia. Anda juga akan tersenyum-senyum sendiri saat menemukan selipan humor yang satir di dalam bahasan yang serius. Pas untuk Anda yang mencari bacaan alternatif dan menawarkan sudut pandang berbeda.”


Julia is not just a critical feminist, but also a true humanist. She moves us to sincerely respect our fellow human beings and the plurality of culture and religion as certainties, and even sources of peace.”

– Musdah Mulia

Julia’s Jihad is jihad in fourth gear in the struggle for openness, rationality, humanity and, naturally, woman—all spiced with a big dose of humor and wit that shakes up the reader. Reading Julia, you keep on laughing until you suddenly realize that what she is writing about is not funny but very, very serious.”
