Dewi Sartika’s 132rd Birthday
4th December 2016 @ Google in Indonesia
Today’s Doodle celebrates Dewi Sartika, a leader in women’s education in Indonesia during the late 1800s and early 1900s. At just 18 years old, Sartika started teaching women in a small room in the back of a house. Two years later, she opened the first school for women in Indonesia, and over the next ten years expanded her reach to ten schools.
She was awarded National Heroine by the Indonesian government in 1966 for her positive influence and public service to women across Indonesia.
Happy 132nd birthday to this educational trailblazer!
