Despite government dominance in many areas of social action, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have a rich history, though they often have had limited funds, have operated under government restraint, and have been limited in much of their activity to urban areas. They have served in fields such as religion, family planning, education, rural health and mutual aid, legal aid, workers’ rights, philanthropy, regional or ethnic interests, literature and the arts, and ecology and conservation Muslim and Christian organizations have been active in community education and health care since the early twentieth century. Foreign religious, philanthropic, and national and international organizations have supported welfare efforts by government and NGOs, though most NGOs are homegrown. The authoritarian nature of the New Order led to tensions between the government and NGOs in areas such as legal aid, workers’ rights, and conservation, and the government sought to co-opt some such organizations. Also, foreign support for NGOs led to tensions between the various governments, even cancellations of aid, when that support was viewed as politically motivated. With the collapse of the New Order regime and pressures for reform since 1998, NGOs are more active in serving various constituencies, though economic upset during the same period has strained their resources.

Women are paying the price for following different brands of feminism. They want to live and work like men, smoke to alleviate stress, and drink to prove that what men do they can do better. In the last fifteen years, there has been a three-fold rise of women alcoholics. Earlier, women had the advantage of a four and half year life expectancy over men. Today the gap is decreasing because of similar lifestyles. Women don’t realize that by masquerading as men they are merely living up to patriarchal values. According to scientists from the Swedish Institute of Public Health, there is a link between equality and ill health. Men are affected by the loss of male privileges, and women’s health is damaged by greater opportunity for risky behaviour and the stress of long working hours.

Sposi provided a romantic image of Italy struggling against outside forces. Giuseppe Mazzini’s Young Italy organization and his fiery writings during and after the revolutions of 1848 did much to stir Italian nationalism and hatred of outside rule. Certainly, the roots of Italian fashion go way back – to 14th-Century Florence. And as the cradle of the Renaissance, Italy can lay claim to some serious heritage. In Florence, for elite families of the period – the Medici among them – appearance and display were intimately bound up with identity. Affluent Florentines were obsessed with fashion, investing huge proportions of their fortunes on clothing. During the New Order, those not having a religion were suspected of being Communist, so there was a rush to conversion in many areas, including Java, which gained many new Christians. Followers of traditional ethnic beliefs were under pressure as well. In places such as interior Kalimantan and Sulawesi, some people and groups converted to one of the world religions, but others sought government recognition for a reorganized traditional religion through both regional and national politicking. Among the Ngaju Dayak, for instance, the traditional belief system, Kaharingan, gained official acceptance in the Hindu-Buddhist category, though it is neither. People who follow traditional beliefs and practices are often looked down upon as primitive, irrational, and backward by urban civil and military leaders who are Muslim or Christianâ€” but these groups formed new sorts of organizations, modeled on urban secular ones, to bolster support. Such moves represent both religious and ethnic resistance to pressure from the outside, from neighboring Muslim or Christian groups, and from exploitative government and military officers or outside developers of timber and mining industries. On Java, mystical groups, such as Subud, also lobbied for official recognition and protections. Their position was stronger than that of remote peoples because they had followers in high places, including the president.
