Hari Kartini, also known as Kartini Day, is an Indonesian holiday celebrated on April 21st each year. It commemorates the birth of Raden Ajeng Kartini, a prominent figure in Indonesian history and a pioneer in the fight for women's rights and education.

Kartini was born on April 21, 1879, in the Javanese town of Jepara, which was then part of the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). Despite being born into an aristocratic Javanese family, Kartini was determined to break free from the constraints imposed on women in traditional Javanese society.

She advocated for the education of girls, arguing that education was crucial for women to achieve their full potential and contribute meaningfully to society. Kartini corresponded extensively with friends and allies, discussing issues related to women's rights, education, and social reform.

Kartini's ideas and activism had a significant impact on the women's movement in Indonesia. After her death at a young age in 1904, her letters were compiled and published, further spreading her ideas and inspiring generations of Indonesians. Today, Kartini is celebrated as a national hero in Indonesia, and her legacy continues to inspire efforts to promote gender equality and women's empowerment.
