Abstract


Disparities in terms of gender exist in various degrees within the community in West Nusa Tenggara.
Consequently, women experience unfair treatments indicated by low wages, low educational attainment,
vulnerable status of women workers compared to male workers, and less opportunity in public sectors.
National  Program  of Community  Empowerment  puts  gender  equality  and women  empowerment  in
first priority within poverty eradication efforts. This paper  describes factors that influence women  to
participate in the  program and the impacts  of the program on the women  household income and the
probability  of women  household not to be poor.  Sample employed in this  study consists  of 70 people
of  participants  and  30  people  of  non  participants.  Data  collected  through  in-depth  interview  are
analyzed  by  employing  econometrics  analysis  consisting  of  logistic  and  liner  regression  analysis.
The research findings  indicate that  the program has  not  been able  to  improve entirely  the economic
condition  of  participants’  household. However,  by  participating  in  the  program  the probabilities of
households not to  be  poor  could be  increased  in certain  level.  Therefore, many  efforts  need  to  be
taken if we wish  to  eradicate poverty and create  a fairer  and more prosperous  society.
Keywords: gender  equity,  women  empowerment,  women  participation,  poverty  eradication,  and
household  income.
